When you invite Jesus over for dinner it’s a coin toss as to how he’s going to act. Heads, you win, and you get a charming dinner guest. Tails, Jesus wins, and he makes an example out of everything that happens, including you. And really, Jesus wins the coin toss whenever he wants to. This sermon was preached by the Rev. Sare Liz Anuszkiewicz at Trinity Episcopal Church in Warsaw, NY, on September 1, 2019, or Proper 17, Year C.
The readings were: Sirach 10:12-18, Psalm 112, Hebrews 13:1-8, 15-16, and Luke 14:1, 7-14.
