“And they will come from east and west and from north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God” (Luke 13:29).
From the earliest age, much of our self-perception is formed by the conversations around the family table. We hear the stories of who we are, from where we came, and the expectations of representing that heritage. The Kingdom of God, however, draws together a people from every direction and lineage and seats us together at a common table. It is at this table alone that we come to discover who we really and finally are.
