I decided to add a new section to this blog that would encourage folks to initiate conversations that may not fit with the topics of my choosing on the blog. Some of my most satisfying encounters with people, both inside and outside my congregation, have happened around a simple kitchen table or in similar settings. So please, feel free to engage me and other readers in conversations that I hope will be enlightening or “lightening” (we all need a laugh once in a while).
P.S. – The picture above is of the hearth in the original kitchen in Le Puy-en-Velay, where the first six Sisters of St. Joseph lived. (Thanks to Kelly for the suggestion to include it!)
