Black Tie Not Optional

Black Tie Not Optional

Mar 24, 2019

Preacher: Rev. Elisabeth Williams

Series: Lent 2019


The Parable of the Wedding Feast can be very disturbing. It sounds good at the start – God (the King having the Feast) invites everyone, no matter who they are, good or bad. We like that part, because it gives us hope. But then God throws out one guest who is not dressed properly. That worries us; it makes us wonder if God really is the loving God we long for. But, as Pastor Beth shows, the invitation is only the start of the journey. Yes, we are all welcome, but God expects much of us. We must change our lives to live as worthy guests in God’s kingdom.
