the potato eaters


At mayBe's community meal tonight we are continuing our 'bread and wine' cycle. This week we are looking at the possibilities for life that come when people share food and drink together at table. Jesus, of course, is reported by the Gospel writers as doing this a lot. Amongst various resources we'll be looking at this early [1885] picture by Van Gogh: the 'potato eaters.' I like the earthy simplicity of the scene.
