Peacemeal is inspired by the ‘table-example’ of Jesus, who showed that sharing food created space. A space where those wishing to follow him, as well as those of different faiths or no faith, were all equally welcomed, honoured and respected. A place to discuss, debate, listen and learn.
Somewhere to laugh, sing and even dance sometimes; yet also to share concerns, to cry or be angry about things together. A focus for reflection, silence, meditation and prayer, each engaging with what is deep and true for us personally.
A space which children really enjoy. A base from which to feed people who are hungry, to work for reconciliation and healing, and also connect with wild nature.
Peacemeal is about turning the tables on injustice, greed, violence, selfishness and hate. Peacemeal is about setting the table for community, inclusion, forgiveness, acceptance, love, justice and joy. Peacemeal is about changing the world.
Any meal with the clear intention of creating the space for something liberating and life-giving to happen, and raises this expectation, is a Peacemeal.
The new Peacemeal website has now been launched.
Follow the link to the Peacemeal website and you will find stories, recipes, liturgies and information about how to start your own Peacemeal.
