From Tablet to Table

FROM TABLET TO TABLE Where Community is Found and Identity is Formed By Leonard Sweet It is time to return to the table at home and church. Put away our electronic gadgets and spend time with the family sharing stories and the Lord. A good place to begin is at the dinner table sharing a meal. In this day and age we have gotten so busy with our lives that we have got away from some of the best times spent by a family. Leonard Sweet has put together his thoughts about getting together at the table to learn about our family and to get together with others, spending quality time without any distractions from our electronic gadgets. The Bible is full of references to the table and food. Leonard shares them in this book. Jesus used the table to get together with many different people, offering fellowship and stories about God. I agree with the author that we have gotten away from this habit of the table and need to return to the table. We forget that with all that we try to do in our lives we have forgotten the important things and are losing special times we need. Leonard does a good job of explaining the table and gives references from the Bible. He offers examples of how this habit of the table can be a blessing to all and just how important it is to helping others understand God. The fellowship offered at the table is important to family and friends, but we need to be careful not to get hung up on the food being the reason of the get together. A song that the author refers to is Suppertime. It refers to the table that all Christians will sit at, it is the table with our Lord and Savior when we get to Heaven, a time to look forward to. I received this book free from the Tyndale House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
