Soul Food Advent Blog Series 2018: 'Room at the Table'
With just a few days left of the Soul Food Room at the Table blog series, we've rounded up a selection of posts organised by theme below for reflection. Our brilliant, creative guest bloggers have explored the transformational power of hospitality found around the tables of our lives.
The friendly and generous reception of guests, visitors and strangers is central to Soul Food. Many of the posts have explored what it means to truly embrace a heart of hospitality from which these outward acts of generosity flow.
