The Open Table
How It Works
A group of 6-12 individuals sit around a Table and act as a “board of directors” for the brother(s)/sister(s) being helped. Each person around the Table has a specific seat (see diagram left) where they provide help in particular areas as they need it. Simple enough, right? The goal with this tool is to help move people from poverty to stability to community. It is designed to put people together in a space where they everyone is transformed.
Types of Tables
Every Open Table is focused on what we call “Radical Hospitality,” wherein we invite others to share the same space with us while we love on them and help them figure out their next steps.
The Open Table is a tool that churches and the community can use to help those members in their congregations that need it most. It is a way of imparting grace into the lives of people fallen on difficult times.
