- Realizing the Body of Christ as Family
When we gather at our family dinner tables, stories become part of the meal. Stories about what happened that day. Stories about what happened to each family member. Stories of relationships between family members. I clearly remember certain meals we had around our dinner table. There were times when I could always get milk to come out of my sister Lisa’s nose. I remember coming in late after football practice and my mother would have a hot bowl of pinto beans, a couple of pork chops, hot cornbread, a nice white onion cut up, and a big cold glass of milk waiting on me. But, sitting there alone, after everyone else had finished, just wasn’t the same. Family was missing.
