Graces for meal times & reflections on food

Blessed Be Our Table integrates thankfulness with a burning passion for justice, both of which are central to our relationship with a bountiful provider God, with the whole wondrous creation, with each other, and with our sisters and brothers throughout the world who, because of greed and injustice, will not receive their daily bread today.

This book invites us to recommit ourselves to act for justice each time we join in the simple sharing of a meal. It is also very much a celebration ­ of food, of diversity, of community and sharing, of Creator and creation.

The graces, prayers and reflections come from a wide range of contributors: Iona Community members, associates and friends; other religious communities and houses of welcome; humanitarian organisations; various faiths and traditions.
