Have you heard the one about the Egyptian, Kiwi, American and British friends? They all sat down together for a birthday party, broke open the only wine they could find (which they discovered was communion wine), shared some bread recently baked – and Jesus was among them.
Anyway, that’s a version of a great night last night here in the Guesthouse when Laura, Lucy (from the British Council) and I (the Brits), Rosie (the Kiwi) and Jubilee (the American) celebrated Helbees (the Egyptian) birthday with carrot soup, lasagne and date cake with toffee sauce. Much hilarity followed with games of Telepictionary. But the bread and the wine were on the table – and I am sure Jesus was also at the birthday table, as He likes a good celebration. Hopefully a small picture of the bigger future when we all sit down together to eat, drink and party with Jesus.
