A good word from Jeff Meyers:
…a typical Christian feast, although it may contained lots of food and especially wine, will culminate with conversations, story telling, laughter, playing games together, even dancing together arm in arm. No one checks out drunk. But everybody is able to loose themselves in the food and drink and fellowship, praising and thanking God for his good gifts. There is true community. And we are always incorporating others into our feasts, not just family members, but those that are alone, without families, or the poor.
