It’s good Methodist practice to ‘continue in fellowship’ over tea or coffee and biscuits after a service – an opportunity to catch up with news, meet friends and talk about the service (delete as appropriate!). On Sunday 29th May we turned that on its head, and began the day with fellowship before the service as part of our exploration of the Holy Habit of Eating Together. And we didn’t serve tea and biscuits; there was porridge, and bacon butties, and croissants, and cheese and ham and ginger-cake – and tea and real coffee! And there was lots and lots of conversation!
And having began the day in such relaxed fashion, we were challenged in one of the activities during the service: how easy would it be for us to share our table with people who are very definitely ‘not like us’? As you can imagine, that generated plenty of discussion later.
