babettes_feastBabette’s Feast is a powerful tale of the spiritual dynamics associated with living a life integrated with the life of Christ, led by the Holy Spirit. Babette, a servant to two elderly sisters in 19th century Denmark, chooses to use her talents and money to honor her employers. The unexpectedness of this gift, coupled with its amazing extravagance, disorients and disjoints the normally calm, if overly tepid life of the two sisters and their friends in the isolated village.

Babette’s Feast represents the amazing generosity of God when we allow Him to work through us and in us.

It is a sobering story of what can happen when we use our reason to define our life and the lives of others, with the limitations of our perceptions and understandings, rather than relying on the grace and omni-abilities of our heavenly Father. Simply put, Babette’s Feast is a model for what we can be for God to those around us when we choose for Him to be in control of our lives.
