Brooke Lark's photograph of the table reminds us that one of the most powerful and sacred spaces is the very table at which we gather together. The table challenges and invites us to come together, to connect in the spirit of the Last Supper, the Passover, and Ramadan. Together. Sustaining our bodies and spirits - God with us. Peace still possible.
