Today I’m talking with Sarah Harmeyer, who was created to gather people.
Sarah has a table in her backyard that seats 20. Already a natural gatherer, years ago after being dared by her friends to be intentional in gathering people together, Sarah asked her dad to build her a table that would seat 20. She didn’t know it then but this table would become and still is the constant of some of her very best moments.
I really enjoyed talking with Sarah as she reminded me that setting the table, gathering people, and giving the gift of hospitality doesn’t have to be hard. Even if we can’t put together a Pinterest-worthy decorated table or provide the finest china at every meal, there are very simple things we can do to make others feel loved and welcomed.
Sarah has invited many people to her table in her backyard and in inviting people she has also invited growth. Sarah says that in gathering people, how she loves has been changed. It has helped her to believe things for other people.
This is a podcast you need to listen to. While it may look different for each of us, we are all called to love others and to be hospitable. Listen as I chat with Sarah for encouragement and a few tips on how you might do that well.
