Pay-What-You-Can Restaurants Dish Up Dignity in Denver
Jesus had a habit of eating with people. Tax collectors and prostitutes, Pharisees and fisherman, radicals and lepers ate at his table. The night Jesus was betrayed, he shared a meal with his friends, and alluded to the day when people from every nation, class, and ethnicity would dine with him at the wedding feast of the Lamb. As I put on my backpack and leave Café 180, the flavor of grilled flatbread pizza lingers on my taste buds. I lick my lips, and savor a foretaste of the kingdom of heaven.
