    SueAnn, I’m really grateful for this image. And I love the connections others are making – Janet’s two-way relationship and Mary’s allusion to the Beloved Community. My question might be how do we do this without falling into a subtle form of superiority (or consumeristic like the seeker friendly models of contagious evangelism we saw from evangelical mega churches). That’s where the beggar telling another beggar about a “superabundant feast” is helpful, for it doesn’t reside with us. And yet, for many churches, it’s easier to get this rhetoric right than the reality.
