What if you went to the mailbox one day and received a letter from God asking you to host a dinner - in God's honor? Award-winning author, composer and lyricist Rayme Sciaroni shares the irresistible story of Jenny, a woman in her early 50’s who receives such an invitation. Jenny is requested to invite any one she chooses as well as a person she doesn’t know very well to the momentous event. The guests are urged to each bring a dish they would like for God to taste and to wear clothing they would like for God to see them in.
Why would God choose her to host a dinner party? Is this truly God reaching out to Jenny or is it a silly joke? Will God really show up? Sciaroni introduces you to an intriguing cast of characters in Jenny’s world and takes the reader on a journey of unforeseen surprises that far surpass the expectations of Jenny or her guests, expanding their awareness of what or who ‘God’, or, among other names, ‘The Universe’, might mean to them.

The list goes on! With so many different facets throughout his life, this story is the culmination of his teachings, his observations and his keen awareness of recognizing the ‘little every day jewels’ that makes life so wonderfully joyful and juicy!

What would you do if you were invited to throw a dinner for God? What would you wear, how would you act, what kind of questions might you ask? This book makes you think about a Higher Power without politics. This idea is challenging enough. And, in combination with the CD and new journal, it's a perfect program for youth groups and churches, temples, mosques and other communities. I LOVED IT!
