This was such a fun podcast to record! We are literally gathered around a table! The voices you hear are the founders of The Gathering Table, Melissa and Mark Aguillard and Jeff and Cheryl Moehling. They build beautiful tables that you will absolutely want for your home AND for every table ordered, they give a table to one of their local outreach partner organizations here in Austin. I was so excited to hear about their business and how they are giving back. Their tag line is, “Buy One. Unite Many” which I LOVE. It’s fun to get the inside scoop on how a new venture begins…to get the “why” and meet the people who say, “YES!” to putting their dreams in motion.
God gives us ideas and then we have to actually do the work. Amen? These couples have been friends for many years and “finally live in the same town”. They are excited to have the opportunity to live out this greater calling on their lives together. How great is that??? Listen in and see what they are all about! Then head over to their website and order a table!
I’m thrilled to be having a conversation with Alan Graham on the podcast today about his ministry and his new book! He is an inspiration for sure- funny, down to earth, wise and inspiring. I’m so grateful for his “YES!” to sharing his heart with us! Listen in, you will love him!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Homeless. No other word better describes our modern-day suffering. It reveals one of our deepest and most painful conditions—not having a sense of belonging. However, Alan Graham, founder of Mobile Loaves & Fishes and Community First! Village, is improving the quality of life for a vast number of people by sharing his personal story of becoming more human through humanizing others. In Welcome Homeless, Graham delves deep into what it means to be connected to God, the earth, and each other. In doing so, he shows us the home we’ve all longed for but never had.
Graham wants to engrain the human story in you so deeply that you start being who you were made to be—that you start being like the image from which you were made. In Welcome Homeless, Graham also shares the stories of the homeless, and the stories of those whose worldviews have been shifted by the homeless in a raw, humorous, and honest voice. Home is fundamentally a place of connection and of relationships that are life-giving and foundational, and Graham invites you to make everyone feel truly at home by finally inviting those living on the fringes of society into your heart.
