Two Tables

Two Tables

I’m a little sad that I didn’t find these resources until the 2 days before the 3rd Sunday of Advent! The TEC Office of Public Affairs kicked off a whole Season of Advent resources back on Sunday, 20 NOV, Christ the King. Called Make Ready the Feast, the resources offer a scripture citation and a recipe for every day of Advent. “The recipes represent diverse cultures and traditions, demonstrating the strong relationships that cross borders and oceans in The Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion.” The first recipe was for a Traditional Christmas Pudding.

Advent calls us to a time of preparation and hope as we await the birth of the Christ Child. One tangible expression of this call is planning, cooking, and sharing a meal or special dish that brings sustenance and comfort to others and to ourselves. The importance of providing food for both body and soul is found throughout the Bible. Coming to the table – in whatever condition or station of life – is essential to our faith.
– Mary Brennan, Episcopal Church Mission Communication Officer

The above video features Maggy Kent, daughter of an Episcopal priest, speaking about Two Tables, demonstrating “the interplay between food and faith at two tables – the altar and the kitchen table.”

The resource is a website with each day’s offering of scripture and recipe.

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.
