Mikhail Sergeyevich Telegin, generally called Misha; and at the foot of the table
sat Missy herself, with an empty place next to her. 'Ah, that's right. Sit down – we
are still only at the fish course,' said old Korchagin, carefully and with difficulty
chewing with his false teeth and looking up at Nekhlyudov with bloodshot,
apparently lidless eyes. 'Stepan,' he called, with his mouth full, addressing the
stout dignified butler and indicating with a glance the empty place. Although
Nekhlyudov knew ...

The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph Readings: 1 Sam 1:20-22, 24-28; Ps
84:2-3, 5-6, 9-10; 1 John 3:1-2, 21-24; Luke 2:41-52 “Did you not know that I must
be in my Father's house?” (Luke 2:49) It was the empty place at the table that
sounded the alarm for the worried parents. After a day's travel, enjoying the
camaraderie of the extended family, the nightly meal revealed that their son was
missing. The circumstances may be different, but most families know what it is to
have an ...

This would be the best wine Don Luis would ever taste in his life. One of the
servants announced that their dinner was ready. It had been, in fact, ready for
sometime awaiting the last of their guests. The dining room and kitchen were
across the courtyard and did not have the fine view of the other living spaces.
Fresh fragrant candles had been lit and the table was set for eight. The empty
place at the table was in remembrance of the colonel's late wife. Her place next to
the colonel had ...

The governor glanced at the four counselors who were seated around the table,
but he did not speak. He slowly paced the floor, gazing steadily at the wall in front
of him, waiting for his thoughts to quiet. Impatience mingled with irritation as he
stopped and looked at the somber and expectant faces of Gideon, Himni, Melek
and Seezoran and then at the empty chair where Ablom should have been sitting
. No one spoke, but everyone looked at the empty place at the table. The sound

CHAPTER SIX THE EMPTY PLACE It all started with an empty place at the
dinner table at the Mission House. Usually we all are lunch together at a large
wooden square table in a room rather grandly referred to as the 'refectory' even
though it would have been a bit poky as a dining room in a Country vicarage. The
unspoken rule was that we all sat in the same places; there was quiet
consternation and a gentle whispered correction when an unsuspecting visitor
happened to sit in one ...

the empty place at the table with lowered and solemn eyes. We finish our lunch
and I help gather our dishes. I pretend not to notice the unused place setting. I
help wash and dry and put the dishes away in the sagging cupboards. There is a
1945 calendar from El Charro Restaurant with a painting of Popocatepetl and
Ixtaccihuatl — the star-crossed Aztec lovers — hanging on the wall above the
sink. We are both lost in thought as we finish the kitchen chores. "Nina," I ask at
last. "Yes ...

Our daughters were born within thirteen days of each other (in a fateful echo of
John and Mark's birthdates, which are ten days apart), so over the past five years
we had compared everything from shit-viscosity to ferocity of tantrums and all the
delights in between. We'd been on holidays together, we witnessed John's
proposal to Fran on the steps of the Sacré Coeur. Consequently, the empty place
opposite me at the table that lunchtime seemed to be waggling its dick at me
more than ...

They complied with some normal bickering about who would do what. By the time
Jeremy had lifted the last pancake from the griddle, both children were seated at
the island, place mats before them. “You know, we have a perfectly good table,”
he remarked, taking the stool they'd left for him, between them. The custom of
having meals at the island had begun after Susan's death. It had been too painful
for him and for Jerry to cope with the empty place at the table in the breakfast

An' when th' ev'nin' comes, an' I wipe the sweat | from my brow, I stop wi' my coat

remarkably remote and theoretical to most people these days; what we seem to
forget is that they were designed in order not only to tell us the truth about God
but to make us live that truth. They are invitations, ways of passing on Jesus'
invitation to be changed, to repent and trust him, to walk with him. This image of
the Trinity more than most ought to make that clear. As has often been said, the
empty place at the table is for us; there is, so to speak, a fourth seat which
