King Cake from Deaux Boys and Conversation Around the Home Table in Millbrook, Alabama
Featuring Special Guest: Hunter Harris
If Jesus was Cajun, one of His most famous invites might o’ sounded like this: “Who dat who is tired, worn slap out, and frazzled? Come unto Me and I’ll show you how to take a real, good rest, for my yoke is the big easy and my burden, it be light.” (Matthew 11:28-30) Well, Cajun or not, Jesus is the namesake to king cake.
The journey of Lent begins this week. I define it as a wonderful journey of intentionality. When I thought of that trait, today’s guest, Hunter Harris, came to mind. When I asked Hunter how I could pray for him this year, he said, “I feel like I have a lot to learn and I want my ‘rest’ to be my ‘abiding’ in Christ…” That’s a good ask. That’s intentionality. So join us at this table planted betwixt where Mardi Gras ends and Lent begins. Set a spell and rest your weary bones while we rustle up a slice of king cake; we saved you a seat.
