At the intersection of food and spirituality, the Joyful Feast is an emerging network of people trying to recognize God’s presence around us and within us. In the midst of a fractured world, we do what Jesus did: we gather around common tables to share food, drink, and life with each other. We believe that good and sustainable food isn’t just for the privileged few—it’s a sacred gift intended for everyone. In all that we do, we strive to reconnect with each other, with the natural world, and with the divine.

We all have big questions—questions of ultimate concern—but we don’t all have a place free of judgement to discuss those questions. The Joyful Feast hopes that CRAFTing Connections might be that place for you. On the first Tuesday of each month we gather at a local brewery to make connections with each other, enjoy good beer, and explore life’s big questions.

Putting our exploration of racial reconciliation into practice, on the fourth Monday of each month we are joining a local gathering of Coming to the Table, a national a national organization working to heal the wounds of slavery and racism. One of the ways they do this is by gathering together diverse groups of people to share a meal and engage in conversation. The Joyful Feast is providing food and Coming to the Table-RVA is providing discussion facilitation.
