The table is a central image in Christianity - feasts appear frequently in Jesus' parables, the central act of Christian worship takes place around a table and the Bible describes heaven as a place of banqueting. Building on this inviting imagery, Dilly Baker offers ready-made resources for the whole year.
From the blessing of a home to a quiet day on the environment, from a Eucharistic prayer Easter to a credal statement for Human Rights Day, here are liturgies, prayers, gospel reflections, meditations, ideas to use on retreats and with all-age groups and, appropriately, seasonal recipes for simple good food to share.
'Dilly Barker has drawn together this collection of prayers, meditations and spiritual writings from her experience of living in community and offering hospitality to all who seek a closer experience of the love and generosity of God. There is a seasonal flavour to each of the four main chapters, which have a wealth of material to be shared. The liturgies can easily be used in any setting and there are lots of ideas for those who wish to spend time together in a less formal atmosphere.' Magnet, Autumn 2008
