Togetherness happens around a table.
What is on your dining room table right now? Bills, laundry, maybe your kids' soccer cleats? In this fast-paced world, it's easy to start trading our dining tables for sofas and televisions, but what would happen if we started to see the table as the most important piece of furniture in our homes? Just picture it: No TV. No cell phones. Just your family enjoying one another over a nice meal.
In The Living Table, Abby Turner shares a straightforward, practical approach to serving others. Each section of this book focuses on a "table" that provides inspiration around ways you can serve others, whether it's through celebrating a holiday, planning a party, or welcoming a newborn baby into the world. Abby encourages us to dust off our tables, make some food, and follow Jesus's example by inviting people into our lives.
Abby not only provides creative, fun recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less, but she also reminds us that connecting matters more than creating the perfect dish. No matter which stage of life you're in or how experianced you are in the kitchen, The Living Table is your guidebook for doing life with others. You'll find that creating community around your table leads to authentic moments where you and your guests can connect with God and share your joys and triumphs, your pain and healing, your loves and losses - together.
