Babette's Feast: An Appetizer
"Mercy and truth, my friends, have met together," said the General. "Righteousness and bliss shall kiss one another."
This is a tale of grace-a breaking in of the not-yet into the here and now, a taste of glories to come and a sampling of forgiveness and love. It is a turning of the literal table by the servant who liberates those she serves by doing her "very best" to "make them perfectly happy," thereby teaching them the greatest lesson of their lives.
