The cafeteria style deli was a favorite 1980s place for a diverse group of downtown workers to grab a quick sandwich for lunch. As lunch trays made their way to the checkout, it wasn’t unusual to see bank presidents and high profile attorneys conversing with retail store clerks and stock boys. When you entered Grandmother’s Kitchen everyone was on equal terms and included homeless individuals that roamed the city streets.
I remember the gentleman who ate lunch with cigarette butts in his nose and ears. It was rumored he was once a notable journalist who suffered a mental breakdown and experienced hallucinogenic episodes when not on medication. Notable other include the man who directed traffic in his underwear, the woman who dressed for the North Pole in the middle of summer and the guy dressed in a super hero costume that offered sidewalk hugs. These were just a few of the many unique guests welcomed at Grandmother’s Kitchen.
Jesus welcomes us in the same way; we are all on equal terms with Him. He feeds our spiritual hunger and offers daily menu selections to satisfy our every need. Take a peek at today’s menu.
Open Face Sandwich A hard crusted layer of sin covered with grace, layered with mercy and topped off with an unlimited side dish of forgiveness.
