A Crowded Table

In News by Grace Avenue

November 12-19

Gather around the table! You are invited to a feast this November. Are you ready to join in the celebration or at times does it feel like the table is crowded with too many people, too much food and too many opinions? The Gospel of Luke offers us two parables that encourage us to consider our place at the table along with the guest list for the party. Thanksgiving is the perfect season to share a meal with a neighbor and find the abundance God offers us all.
