I first heard about the Turquoise Table at the Allume Christian bloggers conference in 2014.
Kristen Schell was leading a breakout session where she shared the story of how God had led her to place and paint a picnic table in her front yard to foster hospitality in her neighborhood.
The irony of reading the book “The Simplest Way to Change the World” while I prepped wings for my crew on Super Bowl Sunday was not lost on me.
We used to host Super Bowl parties. We didn’t let newborns or toddlers keep us from inviting over our neighbors for big bowls of chili, football food, and watching the big game.
We’ve moved twice within the past three years. Not just down the road, but 10 hours west and 2 states away. And then 8 hours back east.
We’ve had the opportunity not just to visit several churches, but to try to get plugged in once we’ve found our new church homes.
