A Taste of the Kingdom

It's really funny how food brings people together.  We went to a Lebanese food festival today.  It took place on the grounds of a Catholic church (of all places).  There under the pavilions, seated together at picnic tables, were Jews (seemed like the entire Richmond Jewish community), Arabs, Africans, Irish, Italians (even ran into some Iraqi friends).  We were all there, drinking wine, eating amazing food, talking, laughing.  I even danced with my daughter in front of the music stage where a Lebanese family played on clarinet (mijwiz), violin (buzaq),  bongos (tablah), and a lute.

Later my daughter played on the playground with all the children from around the world.

Perhaps this was a taste of the Kingdom to come...
