This is about family, a tribe, a little band of people who walk through it all together, up close and in the mess, real time and unvarnished.

And it all started around the table...

In December 2013, we began gathering for dinner and we called these gatherings Around the Table. It was in this space that we would break bread and share life with teen mothers. These words taken from Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist perfectly describe what is happening Around the Table in Grand Rapids. ‪
