As women we are metaphorically “setting tables” in a thousand different ways.
We are preparing and serving and doing, all the time. But scripture tells us that Jesus has set the table for us! He has already accomplished what even our best efforts cannot, and he tells us to come and have a seat. In women’s ministry here at SPC, we want to practice sitting at the table God has set before us. We can come as we are, partaking in the finished work of Christ, as we let His grace minister to our weary souls. And we want to bring that grace into our families, our neighborhoods, our communities, and our workplaces – inviting the women around us to come and have a seat at the table that Jesus has set.
On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare
a feast of rich food for all peoples,
a banquet of aged wine—
the best of meats and the finest of wines.
On this mountain he will destroy
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the sheet that covers all nations;
he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove his people’s disgrace
from all the earth.
The Lord has spoken.
In that day they will say,
“Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”
