Gathering Together doesn’t have to be Extreme

A sneak peek to the Art of Gathering…coming soon

Every Friday, I join an online Christian writing community, Five Minute Friday. We are given a one-word prompt and write – unscripted, unedited, pure free-write – for 5 minutes. Five Minute Friday is a great place to hone my writing practice and be encouraged by other writers as I write. I will set the timer for five minutes and then write. Here we go! I am excited to invite you in, welcome.

The Art of Gathering

I will extend an invitation to sit at table with others quickly. I don’t know exactly when this practice shifted for me from planned ahead invites to spontaneous ones. What I do know is that shift also shifted my life paradigm. I now can see the absolute treasure of having a table moment with others, and the richness it brings.

I don’t spend much time focusing on the state of my home or the lack of whatever ingredient. But I focus instead on the time together. We will get to be creative as we prepare our meal together. I remember that I will also catch a glimpse of Jesus as I spend time breaking bread together with my friend. I want to make time to see and taste the goodness of God the part that I can only find through the life of the person sitting at table with me.

So, once again the table is changing my life. I am passionate about gathering and I want to come alongside you and show the beautiful simplicity of practicing it. I want you know that gathering together does not have to be extreme instead its a beautiful practice that will change your life because of its simplicity.

This is really a little teaser! make sure you sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss the upcoming fun! A simple and beautiful gathering guide, a giveaway, and stories that will encourage us to shift our view of gathering around the table. I don’t want you to miss it!


Success! You're on the list.

    Don’t know when I last sat at table,
    and can’t recall the last shared meals.
    I’d love to, friend, but am not able;
    just one more thing that cancer steals.
    I’d gladly take a walk with you,
    to count God’s stars up in the sky,
    but that’s a dream that won’t come true,
    ’cause you’d be worried I might die
    upon the open lonely road
    and you might face the dreadful lack
    of strength you’d need to bear the load,
    and to drag my carcass back,
    but grab a Bud, and what the heck.
    we’ll count stars from out on the deck.

      wow, thank you for your words! ugh cancer for sure a thief, but I love that it also helps us uncomplicated things doesn’t it? we have to pay attention to the simplicity of the gifts before us and counting stars on the deck sounds like the right perspective!
