Symbol and Name
This symbol represents the greatest commands in scripture, LOVE GOD & LOVE OTHERS. What you’re looking at is an aerial view of a round table with 6 seats. The heart seated in the center of the table represents the command to love, and the seats around the table define how we are to love.
We love GOD with all our HEART, SOUL, MIND, & STRENGTH, and love OUR NEIGHBOR like we love ONE ANOTHER.
The Table is the setting where family is united. Ideally, a family gathers at their table to receive nourishment by sharing a meal together, and to provide space to share stories with one another. It is our desire that The Table would be a place for you to receive soul nourishment, and a place where we can share story together.
In the Bible the table represents the setting of GRACE. It is a place that we are invited to come and feast with God and be in communion with Him. We cannot earn a place at this table of grace, but we are invited to come and sit. Here are a couple examples.
Jesus shares a parable with us in Luke 14 that illustrates God’s invitation to come and enjoy fellowship with him; to share in the feast he has prepared. In the story the master prepares a great feast, but the ones he invited to come make excuses of why they cannot come. So, he sends out his servant into the streets and alleys of the towns to bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind, the lame. Then also out to the country to compel them to come so that his house will be full. Our desire is to accept the Master’s invitation to come and feast with him at his table.
Table of Communion:
Communion is the story of Jesus sharing his last meal with his disciples. It is pregnant with meaning and implications, but the main illustration for us is of God’s grace and his invitation to come participate in his mission and values.
