Come to the Table, features thirty-four selected works from historical pieces by Albrecht Durer, to modernist work by Jasper Johns and Sadao Watanabe, to fresh contemporary pieces created by CIVA artists. This work, executed in a variety of media, celebrates both the rich community gathered at the Table of Fellowship and the privilege of meeting with God at his Table of Communion. The table is a rich biblical metaphor seen in passages such as Abraham entertaining angels, the Christ’s Last Supper with his disciples, the great Marriage Feast of the Lamb at the end of time. Indeed, the promise of Revelation 19 is that human history will culminate around a table where the people of God are all present. God’s Table is a place of welcome, justice, abundance, and worship.
