  • Advent 2019: Four Feasts: Part 3 – Luke 14.12-14

    The Feast is for Hospitality

    Christmas has become a time of unrivaled charity. Much-needed donations will be made this time of year to groups that feed the homeless, serve the poor, and provide toys for children. Charities that limp along all year may joyfully find themselves receiving a donation or two that helps put them in the black, enabling them to carry on their good work. Praise God for the work that charities do, and praise God for the givers who keep them running!

  • Advent 2019: Four Feasts: Part 1 – Luke 14.1-6

    As we enter the season of Advent, four Sundays when we prepare for the feast of Christmas, I was struck by Luke 14 and the fact that four distinct teachings of Jesus are given, all in the context of a feast that Jesus is attending, and each lesson giving us insight into the ultimate feast that is God’s kingdom. 

    It seems fitting to me as we approach the feast of Christmas that we might consider these four portraits of the feast of the kingdom.
