Scriptures include: Proverbs 25:6-7 and Luke 14:1, 7-14
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?”
Jesus is known for eating his way through the Gospel of Luke. Meals for Jesus are a central part of faith and life, and prime teaching moments. But Jesus was also known for eating meals with “all the wrong people.” He frequently chose to dine with sinners and saints alike. And in our Gospel text this Sunday, he drives home the point when he dines with the religious leaders and tells them a parable about seating, invitations, humility, and inclusion. Who are we dining with and why? How are we approaching shared table fellowship – as servants or vying for attention?
This is the season after Pentecost in the Christian year. Having celebrated the “birthday of the church” through the giving of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, we enter the Season after Pentecost for 24 weeks, to celebrate the existence of the church and recall her mission in the world. The liturgical color for the season is green, symbolic of the church’s growth and mission.
