Food is a Great Connector…so, now what?

#primal salad: parsley; cilantro; pickled tomatillo, Bermuda,... on Twitpic

  • Sunday, I tweeted about chicken.
  • Monday someone texted me about coconut flour pancakes.
  • One of the highlights of the month is dinner at Il Fornaio with the gang.
  • One topic of the first ecumenical council (Acts 15) was table fellowship (dining together).

All these fit together in the intertwining of moments that create and enrich community.  My first thought–the one usually tossed out like the first pancake of the batch–is to leverage this.  The second thought is how crass and commercial that sounds.

Maybe a better idea is to attend:

  1. To be present.
  2. To take care; give attention: We’ll attend to that problem later.
  3. To apply or direct oneself: attended to their business.
  4. To pay attention: attended disinterestedly to the debate.
  5. To remain ready to serve; wait.
