The gospel story is filled with meals, opening in a garden and ending in a feast. Research suggests that early Christian worshippers met primarily to share meals, but over time churches have decentralized the focus on food.
Today, a new movement is under way, bringing Christians of every denomination, age, race, and sexual orientation together around dinner tables. Men and women hesitant to step through church doors are finding faith in new ways as they eat together.
Kendall Vanderslice, graduate of the BU Gastronomy program and recent recepient of a master's in theological studies from Duke University, shares stories of worship around the table, and introduces the contemporary dinner-church movement.
