Meals are a powerful expression of welcome and friendship in every culture. Meals are more than food – they’re social occasions that represent friendship, community, welcome. As well as preaching, teaching and healing, Jesus did a lot of eating. It’s not an accident that at the heart of what it means to be the church, the way Jesus told us to remember Him, is a meal.

Friendship

A good friend is worth their weight in gold.”
Anon
That’s a lot of gold! Why do you think that this is such a popular proverb?

Thought of the Day

Learning to be a good friend, someone who can be trusted and is loyal, takes a lifetime.  Talk together about how friends come in all shapes and sizes.  Some are young, some are old.  Some are always there, some we see only occasionally.
• How do we choose our friends?
• What makes a good friend?
• Are we a good friend to others?
