“Tuesday Table Talks”… why I’m writing this Blog
“Spill the tea, “that’s the Tea”… A modern definition of spread the news, or, that’s the truth!
According to Urban Dictionary, “spill the tea” means, “the scoop”, “the news”. The term can be used for local gossip, to indicate that yours is the juiciest of news!” “Have you heard the latest?” “You can count on this being the truth!” Nowadays, phrases like this are often used interchangeably with, “That’s, the tea!”
HISTORY The phrase, “Tea Time” evolved from a British afternoon snack to a full-on experience beloved by women worldwide. In the eighteenth century, “unaccompanied” ladies had been afforded few socially acceptable outlets for gatherings. They met, not just to drink “tea”, but also to gather with friends and chat up the latest events.
CULTURES In many countries, cafes are filled with men sharing the latest. They’ll sip on a tea or coffee cup for hours, swapping events, giving opinions, only to meet, and repeat, the next morning.
MODERN DAY Enter any eatery nowadays, and you’ll find gatherings of girlfriends, guys with their best buds, or any mix of sexes, ages and walks of life! They’re all sharing their stories around a table.
My Teastory is rooted in chats, with drinks that “drop-by-drop” changed my outcomes. Every sip of the host’s hot liquid seemed to come with a message. Those life lessons guided me, and eventually transformed the lives of women and men around me. The story of one family’s journey of faith can be yours too. I have the very best news to share with you, but it’s not gossip or mindless hearsay.
My blogs will serve as “place settings”, exploring further insights into the subjects covered in “A Place at My Table”. But like any exchanges between good friends, conversations can wander “from the sublime to the ridiculous”. Some posts will inspire or give you a good idea. Others may bring a tear. Many will bring a give you a chuckle for the day.
Jesus announced, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.” Luke 4:18,19
The good news is the ultimate testimony anyone can share. You can count on it. That’s the tea!
