Bishop Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool, reflects here on the Church as a table, built by Jesus the carpenter and stretching down every street and into every home. Anyone who wishes to sit at the table may do so, and there they will find themselves alongside the very One who mde the table - a poor man, a carpenter. He will feed, serve and love every person, and ask them to feed, serve and love others. Bp Paul describes four key elements of living in faith as a friend of God, sitting at the Table: Meeting at the Table - offering and receiving commitment in our relationship with each other; Drinking from the Fountain - being nourished by Scripture, creeds and worship; Watching in the Moment - spending "real time" in prayer with God, and being open to God's call; and Stretching for the Kingdom - extending the Table through witness, justice and inclusion. Equality and justice are at the heart of The Table - justice that does not come without struggle, patience and quiet perseverance, as demonstrated by the Hillsborough families in Liverpool over the last three decades. Bishop Paul argues that a Church that knows justice and Jesus is a Church that can best accommodate our rich and diverse communities and embody the hopes of future generations.
