I once gave a service to our vanishingly (and I mean that literally) small church on the very topics addressed in this interview. The service is too long for this purpose, but the closing words should give you a taste.
I thank you all for sharing your company with me today and giving me the privilege of serving you. May you have many more good meals with dear friends and fine food. And may your hosts fill your hearts and your plates as God would have them filled. May these meals be ones that set you out on the great adventure that is the rest of your life. Amen.
