Yesterday we had a fantastic sausage and mash supper as part of our harvest celebrations. Thank you to all who played a part in organising or bringing food, and not forgetting those who cleared up afterwards. And thanks to our friends from the Methodist church and Holy Trinity church for joining us for the celebration.
Today we had a great spread of offerings that people had brought. The tins and pasta and other foods will go to help feed the homeless. In the service we were all invited to join in decorating a table ready for a banquet. We had plates, flowers, a centrepiece, flowers, knives and forks, confetti and even fireworks! Then with all the food we brought there was just one thing missing. People. We are all of us invited to come to the wedding banquet.
From Matthew 22:
‘Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
