Memorial Dinner for Food Minister Rebecca Roberts

Dear Friends,

On Tuesday, August 8th we will gather for a special Dinner Church service to honor Open Table’s beloved Food Minister Rebecca Roberts. Rebecca brought the community to life through her ministry of feeding people body, mind, and spirit. Caring deeply for the nourishment of the body, Rebecca found cooking, feeding, and eating with others to be a spiritual practice.

On August 8th we will gather to honor Rebecca in the best way we know how: by cooking a meal together and sharing stories about Rebecca while eating the food we prepare together. Each person will participate in preparing the meal, and you need not have any cooking experience. Many of the tasks will be simple and require no prior knowledge of how to work a kitchen (there will also be tables to set and dishes to wash if that is your preference). We will sing a couple songs, pray, and everyone is invited to share their stories about Rebecca while we enjoy this meal together. Rebecca’s joy while cooking was contagious and together we will honor that spirit.

Arrive at 6:30pm to 1555 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge. We will meet in the downstairs kitchen of the Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church. There is street parking available as well as easy access by public transportation.

This service is open to all and we hope to see you there.
