The community dinner of my dreams (video)

Remember community dinners before COVID-19? Those days will return, and I’ll bet they’ll be even more successful and appreciated.

I saw this wonderful video from United Methodist Communications more than a year ago. A pastor in Toledo, Ohio, opened up his house to offer “LifeLine Toledo,” a big dinner ministry reaching people well beyond the traditional Sunday-morning congregation.

Watch the video:

Some people will never walk into a church building, but they might come to a house for dinner. I’ve often dreamed of having a house, maybe a parsonage that’s no longer needed, to share big meals.
