Gathered Tables

Being a Community

DaySpringers are intentional about gathering around meals for conversation and connection. Through the years and through several iterations, we still sense the importance of connecting in these ways, even as we grow in number. Today we call these meals “Gathered Tables”. 

Everyone is invited to take part during Gathered Table Week, November 5-12. Wherever you live, you’ll probably find a Table meeting near your neighborhood. Please sign up by using the sign-up form linked below. If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Brown.

We all need to eat and drink to stay alive. But having a meal is more than eating and drinking. It is celebrating the gifts of life we share. A meal together is one of the most intimate and sacred human events. Around the table we become vulnerable, filling one another’s plates and cups and encouraging one another to eat and drink. Much more happens at a meal than satisfying hunger and quenching thirst. Around the table we become family, friends, community, yes, a body.
