This booklet, #7 in Welcome to Dialogue series, was inspired by a story Jonathan Larson, pastor of Berea Mennonite Church in Atlanta, Georgia, told.

The events of the story occurred during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960's. A volunteer who had come from Calgary, Alberta, employed his carpentry skills in the evening to create a large table. Half of the table was dark mahogany; half light maple. People would sit down at the table to eat with others, to talk, to rest from all the turmoil, police dogs, water hoses, abuse, and jail time. They'd come to get away from the conflict and deep feelings these events stirred up within them, Larson said. "Somehow this table in this household nourished and strengthened them, helping them to understand that when the whole family was gathered around the table, then they would all be whole."
