We all have some type of image of what we believe heaven is like. That image has probably evolved since your childhood. And then there is the question of who we expect will make it into heaven. There surely won’t be any “riff raff” in heaven. Trying to determine who gets in and who doesn’t from our human, logical, law-abiding mind-set doesn’t work at all when confronted with the messages of of grace and salvation we find in scripture. This week the gospel lesson from Matthew helps us to envision the kingdom of Heaven – and just who might get to go.
In this sermon we look more closely at what we can learn from Jesus’ parable of the Wedding Banquet.
