In Jesus’ time and culture, the notion of hospitality (not just to family and to friends, but even more so to strangers) was extremely important. Meals even took on a sacred character: food on the table symbolizing the fact that God had sustained us up to this present hour.
In the Cluster, families of deceased loved ones are offered the option of either a meal, or something as simple as coffee and sweets after their loved-one’s funeral at no cost to families. Many hands take part in this labor of love for one another, so the burden is indeed light.
