We had a wonderful time as we invited a group of forty strangers together for a dinner in West Seattle. However, like Will Rogers said, "A stranger is just a friend I haven't met yet," and we certainly made lots of friends that night. Here are some lovely notes left by our new friends...

Thank you so very much for inviting us to share a meal and connect through storytelling last night. We had a wonderful time.  I feel so lucky to have met you guys. I am so grateful that you had the idea and created space to have conversation and connection by bringing people together over a meal - Lisa

Thank you for putting yourselves out there so visibly and for calling upon us to do new things and make bridges instead of walls. Thank you for feeding us...body, heart and mind. -Deborah

I was truly inspired by Saturday's dinner, and the food was fantastic too. Thank you for having us. We really enjoyed it. I think we all share similar values on making connections and friendships outside of our normal space. -Sam

I want to thank you for a wonderful time last night at the “Eat with Muslims” event.  I had some wonderful conversations. -Marsh
