Sitting around the table is a favorite memory for many of us. We sit around the table and share meals with family and friends. Sometimes we even sit at our table to celebrate a loved one's birthday, or anniversary, with cake and presents. We also share more challenging times around the table, as we remember a loved one we have just laid to rest, or have hard conversations with a friend about a difficult subject that needs to be addressed.
Recently, we had a gathering around the table in our home, but not for any of these reasons. We gathered around our dining table to talk about making disciples.
We gathered to talk about how simple it is to make disciples, even though it is not easy. We gathered to encourage a few others to make "disciple-making" a priority. We spent about 3 hours looking at scripture, training in simple, biblical, reproducible tools, and practicing these tools together. And it was such a blessing to sit with those seeking ways to better make disciples in our everyday lives.
What a blessing it is to use our table to grow as followers of Christ.
If you would like to experience this for yourself, let us know, and we will be sure to contact you about the next "Around the Table Training". Or if you are not able to come to our table, we can make plans to come to your table and do the same. There is nothing better than using the table to grow as His followers.
