A Place At the Table

I want to invite you to join me in a Lenten journey of faith.  Our focus will be on understanding and living in solidarity with the poor.  We will do more than just pray for the poor in our communities and around the world.  It is essential that we pray, but we will do much more than that.  We will eat what they eat, we will walk where they walk, we will learn about their needs, and we will hear from Scripture as we discover a new calling for our Christian journey.

We will be using three different tools for this journey.  First, we will use the book A Place At the Table by Chris Seay.  Second, we will use a series of videos that Chris has produced to help introduce us to the issues of poverty around the world. Third, I will post a daily video on this blog site to help us think and pray together.  I hope you will join me on this journey.

I will post more detailed instructions and web locations in the next few days.  For now, I invite you to get a copy of A Place At the Table.  Read the introductory material and the first four chapters.  That will set the stage for a unique time of biblical discovery, personal learning, and a fast that will shape our journey.

You can obtain a copy at your local Christian bookstore or online at your favorite Internet retailer.  It is available in hard copy and for electronic readers.  Get a copy today so we can begin our conversation about a fast that just may change your life.
