The Table is Set and Open

The table is set and open
welcoming the holy and the hungry
to the feast of love and full bellies
for the communion of all creation.

The heavenly table is set on Earth
to nourish all people
through the breaking of bread
and the pleasure of wine.

Bread and Wine:
God’s manna of love
and promise of mercy and grace
offered to all without condition.

The metaphoric body and blood:
God’s divine paradigm of justice
predicated on love
and the belovedness of all creation.

We all deserve full bellies
and joyful existence.
