Advent calendar – December 17

make-room-at-the-table

Everyone has to eat. Meals are a time of connection, fellowship and often lively conversation. Many families and friends try to plan meals together. Churches, businesses and schools hold special banquets and gatherings around food. As Canadians, we are blessed with enough to eat that we can share our blessings with others.

Make Room at the Table is a way for you to “make a place” at your table and connect with refugees—to “invite” them as guests, and to “share” a meal with them. It is an opportunity to “welcome the stranger” into your home.

Through the experience you will learn more about refugees, pray for those who have been displaced, and give from your blessings to help provide shelter, food, water and other crucial support to refugees supported by Canadian Lutheran World Relief.
