Mealtime Prayer Results in Gospel Conversation and Connects Churches Across the Country
Pastor Josh Jennings of Aletheia Church in Sedona, Ariz. delivers a sunset devotional with college students. Known as a popular destination for those with New Age philosophies, Sedona is also fertile ground for those seeking the truth in Christ, he said.

SEDONA, Ariz. (BP) – Bowed heads before their meal on an anniversary trip led a Tennessee couple to an opportunity to share their faith. That encounter, in turn, was followed by a social media call-out for help and success in connecting the new believer to a local church.

On Aug. 2 at 4:08 EDT Jimmy Inman, elder and teaching pastor at True Life Church in Jefferson City, Tenn., received a text from Sarah Tarr, a member of True Life. A server had observed Tarr and her husband, Blake, pray before their meal the night before and the next morning approached them as they began breakfast.

The server told the couple she hadn’t been able to find answers to her questions. Could they tell her a little bit about their faith?

With no shortage of spirituality, Sedona is known as one of the top New Age destinations in the country. Many come in search of vortexes, described on the city’s tourism site as “swirling centers of energy that are conducive to healing, meditation and self-exploration.” The grammatically-correct “vortices” is rarely used, the site notes.

Of course, they would talk with her, the couple responded. The server had a 45-minute break later that morning, which meant the Tarrs’ hike into the surrounding canyons would be pushed into the hotter afternoon hours.
