Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
You are Invited to the Table: the Tasmanian gathering of A2A women.
I am a bread and wine girl. For me there is nothing like accepting Jesus’ invitation to come to the table.
To accept a hand extended from the divine to help us with life.
To believe that there is a God in heaven who loves us dearly and who wants to be with us as we do life. That He is here and He is good.
At the table I am constantly reminded that there are many things about life that I cannot change.
I can’t turn an old vinegar into a good red wine.
I can’t help someone choose present over perfect.
I can’t stop hurry or the hard. I can’t fix, heal, or put broken pieces back together again.
I can’t change mindsets or belief systems.
But I can share what had been given to us in our hard, hurry and perfect life –a space at the table, a reminder that a helping hand from the one up above was present and available.
This is what this invitation is about
Girls coming together, offering ourselves, whole hearted and present, to walk with each other, to champion each other as we pursue, love and serve God. To be present with each other as we walk through the joyful times of life, the messy times of Kingdom life – the hard and the peaceful. That is all any of us can do but how powerful when women love well the table.
For me life at the table is hands passing bowls, knives and forks clinking against plates, bread being torn, laughter as stories old and new are weaved, the connection of hearts.
So gorgeous girls…
