This week, our story is about some of the community leaders trying to engage Jesus in everyone's favorite topic: TAXES! But, as usual with these ancient writings, there is more beneath the surface. "If God is in charge, should we bother to pay taxes?", the people ask Jesus. "Give everything to the emperor which belongs to the emperor, and everything which is God's, give to God." Huh? Hmm. Who are we, as human beings? Are we people who live a practical life of working, paying bills, and tending to responsibilities? Are we spiritual people, who would do better to turn our attention to love, kindness, and caring for one another? Are we "dual citizens" of sorts? How can we make sure we are living into our highest spiritual selves, while also living in the realities of here and now? Does body-mind-spirit balance even exist in today's world? How do you make it work? LET'S TALK. ...

HEY! Guess what happens in the story this week? Jesus GOES INTO THE STREETS AND INVITES EVERYONE TO THE FEAST!

This passage is from Matthew chapter 22, verse 9, and it is where Table 229 gets its name. Yeehaw! Table 229 brings people together for sacred time apart from the rush of life. Candles, music, ancient stories, and conversation about real things. It is wonderful - and can be scary sometimes. This week is a good time to ask why it can sound scary to sit down with people different from us? Is it wrong to want to stay in our own bubbles? Community = common unity. The people we spend time with are the people we declare we are in common unity with. How brave can we be in stepping outside of our comfort zones for the sake of common unity? We can also look at wider society, and ask who is welcome at "the table" - who benefits from our societal structure? Who is left out? And how brave can we be in pushing back at some of the injustices we see?

This is the perfect week to invite a friend to 229: Go into the streets and invite everyone to the feast!

For many, this has been a tender, difficult week. A tender, difficult week following a few tender and difficult weeks. Table 229 this week will offer a time and space to be sad or angry, to share, to put heavy burdens down, to pray, to move forward, and to feel empowered. To heal. To breathe. In this week's story, Jesus says to the people, "Didn't you hear? The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone..." What stones are we, as a society, rejecting which we really should be using to build? Love? Empathy? Putting others before ourselves? How can we change things around when everything seems lost and broken? How can we trust something new will always rise. How can we be part of the new thing to be built? Let's figure out what and where and how - and begin to build together. See you on Sunday! ...
