During Holy Week, we remember Jesus riding into Jerusalem—riding toward his death. He knew that people were after him. Jesus knew execution was inevitable. And knowing this, the last thing he did wasn’t to write everything down. He didn’t give a speech or a theological lecture. The very last thing Jesus did was host a meal and then wash the feet of his friends and betrayers. With no time left on earth, Jesus essentially said, “Hey, everything you need to know about who God is, and what you are called to do, is right here, in our meal together.”
This month we talk with Rev. Leanna Coyle-Carr on Jesus’ radical generosity, the art and skill of hospitality, and the relationship Jesus initiated by giving us the gift of bread and wine.
