We look around the table, and we see a glimpse of the image of God—the imago dei. We each carry marks of our creator. God created us and continues to recreate us all.
When we greet each other and enter into conversation with one another with the belief that we all carry God’s spirit—or, to say it another way, when the Jesus in me greets the Jesus in you—then, holy conversation takes place. Words are shared with love; disagreements are grounded in respect; and doubts are confessed in a space of trust.
If the Potluck table is just a stop on your journey, then we give thanks that we were a part of your travels at this moment. If you feel called to pilgrimage with us, we celebrate that fellow travelers are uniting in this with us for whatever time allows, however long God calls.

Set a table, invite Christ and others, leave an empty chair, serve up some powerful questions, and break bread.
