SABĂTICA SUPPER: Celebrating Community {12.8.17}

Maybe you’ll be hosting for Thanksgiving or will be traveling to celebrate with family and friends. Either way, the festivities will surely place a demand on your energy and emotions. Perhaps you just need a break. So, how about you join us December 8th for a relaxing yet recharging night in community.

Join us for a special Sabătica Supper centered around celebration.  We will take time to be present, to break bread and celebrate being in community.

“No one person can fulfill all your needs. But the community can truly hold you. The community can let you experience the fact that, beyond your anguish, there are human hands that hold you and show you God’s faithful love.” –Henri Nouwen

Sabătica Supper No. 1

Despite the cold, windy, below zero degree weather, eight brave friends came out to join our very first Sabătica Supper – for me, it was a night to remember!  We cooked together, laughed, sang and got acquainted with one another. Old friends got to catch up and new friends were made. As the hostess of Supper No. 1, I felt an overwhelming sense of joy as I looked around and observed how engaged, unreserved and happy everyone was. In that singular gathering, many nations were represented namely the United States, Haiti, Peru, Mexico, Venezuela and Italy; thus bringing to life a long-time dream of opening my home and table to the world. Above all, as I watched everyone kick off their shoes and put their worries aside for those few hours; as I subsequently hear comments about the Supper bringing relief to someone’s depression and a well needed break to an exhausted mom, I am overtaken by a deep sense of gratitude to have had the opportunity to witness, on day one, Sabătica’s mandate to facilitate immediate respite and to encourage a life of joy, lived in the now. [SS No.1 – 02.13.16]
