  1. Deborah, As a participant and leader in Great Banquet I thought the findings in your study were great. One important addition in the experience in my own Great Banquet was the importance of diversity (racial, age, denomination) that led to true healing and bonding. There are a network of churches that support the Great Banquet Community in Indianapolis and I would submit that the Diversity is perhaps the most important part.
