"I think it’s one of the primal human characteristics that we can only eat with those people we love. I can’t eat with people I don’t like. I just can’t—I don’t feel like eating. In a household where children are misbehaving at the dinner table what do we tell them to do? 'Go to your room.' We tell them 'We don’t want to eat with you, and when you act better you can come back and join us.' I imagine two cavemen sitting down and having a mammoth leg, and a third one appears. Now if he’s invited to eat with his friends he knows he’s welcome and there’s peace between them, but if they spurn him and push him away there’s already tension between them. Eating together is a basic human characteristic and it’s a way we show love to each other, it’s a way we build community, and it’s the way God builds community with us."
