Pastor Joanne Engquist gives the message on this special 'Back to School' Sunday. At the beginning of this new season, we hear passages from Hebrews 13: 1-3, 16 and Luke 14: 1, 7-14.
"We have our places of regard for people. But Jesus says, 'no. I wanna press for an altogether different way of banqueting, just as I have pressed for an altogether different way of thinking of each other.' No longer is it all about who can give payback or who can behave themselves or who can provide some 'tit for tat' party list. Jesus way insists on a mutuality of spirit instead of a hierarchy of importance."
