On behalf of the garden , we would like to invite you to be part of the Sustainable Table Fellowship group. Please join us!
When: We will be having our first session on Monday, September 16th at 6:30PM, and is expected to last from 6:30PM-8:00PM. We will embark on a seven week journey that meets each Monday to discuss topics covered in our reading as well as enjoying fellowship.
Where: The home of Deborah Appler and Bill Arnold, located at 66 West Greenwich Street in Bethlehem. If you are familiar with the intersection of Main St & Elizabeth Avenue, they are located one block North and one block East of that intersection. At the bottom of this message is a map that you may find helpful.
Pot-Luck: We ask that if possible, please bring a dish — a side, a salad or a dessert. For this meeting we have no expectations of origins of the food or how it was grown, so please don’t be afraid to bring a favorite! Please let us know what you are planning on bringing so we can ensure a variety!
Our Text: Making Peace with the Land: God’s Call to Reconcile with Creation by Fred Bahnson. We will have multiple copies of the book available at our first meeting at a cost of $15.00.
Throughout the course of our study of our book, we will focus on the relationship outlined in this quote: “Thoughtful eating reminds us that there is no human fellowship without a table, no table without a kitchen, no kitchen without a garden, no garden without viable ecosystems, no ecosystems without the forces productive of life, and no life without its source in God.” – Norman Wirzba
Please let us know if you plan on attending so we may plan accordingly. If you are unable to attend the first meeting, but are still interested in being a part of this group, please also let us know.
We look forward to seeing you there!
The Sustainable Table Fellowship Team
