The Leaven Table
Sometime in 2013, I felt impressed to put on record some snippets of my experiences with Father, Son and Spirit, as an expression of love to Triune God. I started off by attempting to journal these snippets as pages from my diary. However, it never took off, and remained as pages in my diary.
In 2015, Chris Kang, a friend, encouraged me to put my thoughts in blog form, to share with others on the Internet. Chris even set up the initial blog on weebly.com for me for this purpose. All I had to do was just to give a name to the blog and start blogging.
And that was how and when The Leaven Table was launched.
The name The Leaven Table was chosen out of my imagination of how these snippets of my experiences were like different portions, shapes, sizes, colours, textures and tastes of delectable food, sweets and desserts, laid out buffet style on a ‘Tok Panjang’, a lavish Peranakan feast, that I grew up with.
Leaven was added in baking two loaves of bread as a wave offering of first fruits to God in the Feast of Weeks for the Jews. Hence, my snippets are as my first fruits of love to God, to be shared with others in love, buffet style.
Even as the Kingdom of God was liken to as the leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till the whole was leavened, my hope is that Holy Spirit may take of these offerings and imbue them with His Presence; that through these, we may experience moments of Pentecost, Father be glorified, Son be exalted and Spirit be embraced, and all grow into ever deepening love and communion one with the other.
As I have freely received, I freely share at The Leaven Table and invite you to come, taste and see that the Lord is really good.
This blog is also a meeting place, where, in the sharing with each other our walk, encounters and relationships with Jesus, Holy Spirit and Father, our joy and lives may be full, resting, abiding and made truly alive in the Triune Being and Life of God, in, with and through the man Christ Jesus.
