The Power of Music and Food

"When we share the gift of food new spaces are created where other gifts can be given and received."

"Songs are the musical story of us:  our culture, our history, our loves and losses. To share them is to remember, to be reminded, to look to the future with hope. To listen to them is to open ourselves empathetically to the stories of others."

"So it is that as we prepare feasts and music for others we do so in the spirit of becoming 'artists of the invisible' - offering all that we have and are to God, allowing it out of our sight and ownership, and thus receiving it back as a gift to share that we can all be thankful for."
