A Place at the Table  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 14: 7–14
Summary: Jesus uses a meal to teach about humility and service. We find our true value and validation in the resurrection, not the ways we seek prestige now. The joy and healing of the resurrection free us to serve and love others, especially those who need it most.

Getting the Proper Perspective  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 14: 1–14
Summary: Jesus turns the world upside down. He says that those who exalt themselves will not end up that way. They, in one way or another, will be humbled. On the other hand, Jesus said that the person who humbles himself will be exalted. One thinks of St. Francis of Assisi, of Mother Teresa, of the Netherlands' saint, Corrie Ten Boom. We hail them for their loving contributions to the world and especially the church. Their pattern for living should also be ours as well.

What’s in It for Me?  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 14: 1–14
Summary: Whom we don’t invite can be just as telling as whom we do invite to our homes, our church and ultimately to the wedding feast of the Lamb. The thing is, this is not our banquet. It’s the Lamb’s, who bears the marks of slaughter. Jesus died for everyone, not just us. We are not gatekeepers, but servants of the Most High God.
