What's a Real Meal?
A Real Meal isn't a thing – it's a person.
It isn't food that perishes. It is “soul food.” It is free, but it costs you everything. It doesn't fill you up; it makes you hungrier. It makes you want more; it brings you back again and again. But rather than drawing you back alone, it calls you to bring others. A Real Meal is best experienced in community – a community that lives for a purpose greater than its own survival. A community whose fuel is the Real Meal and whose purpose is inviting others to the Real Meal.
Who is the Real Meal? Jesus Christ is the Real Meal. In John's report of Jesus' ministry, he records Jesus saying these words in John 6:35 “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
