Eating-Together-graphicLife Around the Table invites you to join us for a weekend retreat September 23-24 to celebrate the mystery and miracles that happen when we gather around the table.  At the retreat you will get a taste of our new curriculum, Eating Together, and its application to your community, along with opportunities for creative worship, storytelling, networking with local food practitioners, and hands-on workshops. Come and take part in an extended conversation about food and faith as we eat together.

Educators, pastors, lay leaders, congregants, and community advocates who want to gain theological insights and learn about practical applications for transforming the ways our communities eat together. What can I expect during the retreat?
