Lately I’ve had an imaginary conversation with someone who asks why I’m a liberal snowflake (or some such). I’m not sure when I think this conversation would take place because I tend to avoid confrontation whenever possible. But I’ve been thinking about my response:
Because I believe that God wants everyone to have a place at the table,
and I believe that our task on earth is to make sure
that all of those welcome people can find the dwelling,
that they can open the door,
that they’re able to step over the threshold,
that they can find a seat,
that they have the proper utensils,
that the food is sustenance,
and that the fellowship is beautiful.
All of the things that we do that make the table unavailable for all of God’s people?
I’m against those things.
