People spend their lives waiting for someone. On occasion we find that someone for whom we wait. Like this table that invites guests, it is a welcome experience when another welcomes us.
I could not help but think about this table as I sat at another table with a friend this week. He has found in others those who welcome him despite and in spite of his experiences. And, around the various tables he sits at from week to week, I am convinced he meets Jesus.
Here is to my family at Snow Hill who seems always poised to wait for someone and be the someone for whom others wait living their lives as Jesus would were he them.
