This morning, Leigh spoke from this week’s lectionary readings.
He started off by talking about how there were certain kinds of people that he would never invite to dinner – but somehow, as Jesus is wont to, He would flip the dinner guest list upside down. That way, these “undesirables” would be given places of honor at the dinner party.
Jesus does this because, ultimately, He is inviting that part of each of us to dinner! Otherwise, if Jesus were to apply our standards to our own dinner parties – we might end up not being invited ourselves!
