The Table

The Table

The table waits.


To welcome you.

To share its abundance.

To bring comfort.

To offer peace.


The table waits.


To hear stories offered.

To share in joy.

To calm a broken heart.

To celebrate the journeys taken.


The table waits.


To hear gratitude.

To join in songs of thankfulness.

To laugh out loud.

To shed tears of joy.


The table waits.


To remember the past.

To look forward in hope.

To dream of peace.

To long for God’s justice.


The table waits.


To sit with neighbors and strangers.

Friends and family.

Young and old.

Rich and poor.

All beloved.   


The table waits for you.


The table is ready.

It always is.

Come and eat.

Come and be fed.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
