One Meal - Blog Action Day by Raymond A. Foss

The Book of Acts, the Acts of the Apostles
valuable lessons for this age, this time in our lives
these uncertain, troubled times,
maybe community can rise again
out of the ashes of our disjointed, unconnected lives

All together, one table, one meal
they lived, worshipped, ate together
a single life the lives of the apostles
out of their wealth they gave,
out of their need they were given
early believers on the way

Sharing all, around one table,
to spread his message
to bring God’s love
out into the world
bringing their lives together
one community, one meal
In meals shared, in sacrament, in community
seeing Christ in our neighbors
we share in their legacy
share the table with them
all of them, no charge
