One of the most commonly asked question I get is “What is a potluck?” According to Wikipedia: A potluck is a gathering where each guest contributes a dish of food, often homemade, to be shared.
It is, but I feel it is much more than that. A potluck is a coming together of people, often strangers and sharing a meal, “breaking bread.”
I have heard drummers say you cannot drum together and remain indifferent to each other. I feel the same way about sharing a meal. Sitting together sharing a meal, especially a meal that everyone has contributed to, is a bonding experience, a communion.
When you come to potluck, please bring a healthy dish to share that will serve at least 4 to 6 people. When people ask me what they should bring, I always tell them to bring something they want to eat, as it is impossible to know what else will show up!
Greet people you don’t know as well as those you do. A potluck is an opportunity to bond with others and feel the oneness shared by all life.
