This party was a gracious gift from our host at the end of a week of study in Maryland. I’ve been forever ruined for any other crab cake. It took the week to catch the crab. It took a good 2 hours to pick the crab (please note that the other 3 people not in the picture were engaged in deep theological reflection – in the pool).
Another hour to make the crab cakes. And the entire evening around the table to enjoy breaking bread together. The music was the tenor of our laughter – loud, boisterous, hearty with an occasional counterpoint of tears as we cared for one who was grieving the impending loss of his call to a particular church.
The dress – shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops and sun-kissed skin. What a glorious evening. What a gift.
