Restore the TableRyan Rush
When is the last time you gathered around the dinner table with those you loved without distractions, having meaningful and intentional conversation? If you can’t remember, you’re not alone. Americans have lost the art of gathering around the table.
Busy schedules, digital distractions, and loneliness plague us, making gathering around the table for a meal feel like something from the distant past. This is why Pastor Ryan Rush posed a challenge to his congregation: have five meaningful mealtimes with those you love each week.
The challenge took off and what happened was transformative. Marriages were strengthened, siblings got along better, people who had struggled with addictions began to face them, students’ grades improved.
The table changed everything.
In Restore the Table, Pastor Rush offers this challenge to all readers who want to strengthen their relationships, improve their quality of life, and go deeper in their walk with God. In the book, he addresses:
- the tables of our pasts and how they’ve impacted us
- why Jesus chose mealtimes to build relationships with people outside his circle
- how to create a healthy and intentional mealtime habit with your loved ones
- how the table can establish your legacy for years to come
Restore the Table will convince readers that the table is so much more than the place we eat. When used intentionally for discipleship and connection, the table can change the world.
