Potlucks! Oh, the joy of potlucks! We had a potluck at work today and Steve and I are hosting our IMPACT team on Sunday. And, of course, it’s a potluck! We rarely have any “get-togethers” without food!
Of course, getting together, sharing a meal and fellowship has roots in the early church. In Acts 2:46, Christians broke bread from house to house and ate their meat with gladness and singleness of heart. They were so excited to be with their brothers and sisters in Christ! They had a “new” family of which they couldn’t get enough! Do you feel like that towards your church family? Are you excitedly looking forward to seeing them again?
Of course, potlucks are a good time to try out new recipes. I usually wait until someone comments on “how good it is” before I tell people that I made it! Lol! But not only can you “make” new recipes, you also get to try something new. I’ve never been to a potluck where I left hungry! I know – just because it’s an “all you can eat” occasion, doesn’t mean that you have to “eat it all!” But, then again, you don’t want to “hurt” anyone’s feelings by not at least trying a “bite!” That explains why I look like I do! But that’s for another blog!
Back to potlucks – the best part is sitting at a table with folks you may not know well or being able to “catch up” with dear friends that you haven’t talked to in a while. There’s just something about telling stories over coffee and chocolate pie! What fun!
If you usually think that, “No one will miss me if I just go home and don’t stay for potluck.” And sadly, you’re right! They may not miss you, but think about what YOU’LL be missing! IMPACT team #1, I’ll see you Sunday! God Bless, Courtney
