Coming together over shared meals has forged bonds between people since the beginning of mankind. A pause in the day to eat, talk, share.
Eating together is a social communion. It’s a fellowship of the table that brings us together to share universal desires and needs. Not just the physical aspects- eating and giving nutrition to our bodies- but also the emotional energy that nurtures and satisfies our hearts, minds, and souls.
The independence of today’s culture leaves us with meals behind the dashboard or in front of the television, and often alone. We’ve lost the communication and bonding we once experienced when sharing meals together…an obvious tear in the fabric of our contemporary culture. This event is an effort to reverse that trend, if only for a few hours.
The Tin Box Fellowship Project is a dinner event that allows participants to pause and enjoy a collaborative meal in pot-luck form. We will enjoy food made by ourselves and others, pause to experience tastes and smells, have some conversation about the communion of food, and hopefully collect some of the positive energy the gathering may create that we can carry with us when we part.
The intent of the Tin Box Fellowship Project is to create energetic space and experience. In this space participants can understand more about coming together with others to share and take the time to feel connected for a little while. It will be temporary communion, and a break from the everyday activity of life that gives people a reason to create moments of communion and fellowship at their own tables.
