Abundant God, we gather around tables to fellowship with those we love.
Food is what sustains us for the journey ahead
and we dine with those who you have called to serve with us.
Help us widen our gaze.
Inspire us to draw the welcome circle wider.
Instill within us the truth that your love knows no bounds.
Gather us this day and forever more in your holy and powerful name. Amen.
