Growing Edges



In thinking about tomorrow's sermon on priorities (The Parable of the Great Banquet in Luke 14:12-27), I came across this gem from Klyne Snodgrass:  "No one should take attendance at the messianic banquet for granted.  Unfortunately, many people do: they have made a decision, they belong to the right group, they have the right schooling, and they have participated in numerous services and charitable efforts, so they can now get on with their lives….It is not enough to wear the right label (“The Invited One”); rather, the kingdom must shape identity so that one has a whole different set of concerns."  (From Stories with Intent, p.322)  Oh, those growing edges!
