St. Andrew Global Outreach During the Pandemic

11-28-2021Fr. Robert S. Aliunzi, AJ

In African Culture and indeed in many cultures, sharing a meal especially during challenging times, signifies an intimate bond and sharing of common values as I pointed out in a previous article. Offering food, no matter how plain and simple, to a stranger or someone in need, is part of basic African hospitality. Meals shared together create and recreate families, friendships, and business relations. Assuring social relationships through food can happen both around the evening fires or dinner table at home. Feasts where those who don’t often eat together can meet up is a great opportunity for strengthening bonds of friendship and for forgiving wrongs and healing broken relationships. They address questions such as: Who’s to be invited? Who sits next to whom? What do the people around the table talk about, and what themes do they avoid? In this way, a shared meal becomes a social event where thoughts, knowledge, experiences, and emotions are shared, and the community strengthened. It also serves as an opportunity for healing both social and physical ills in society.
