Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Scripture coming true

Jesus told a story to illustrate the Kingdom of Heaven in which a king threw a great wedding banquet for his son and many invited guests did not show. So the king said to his servants,
The wedding feast is ready, and the guests I invited aren't worthy of the honor. Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.
Last month, a bride and groom in Washington State cancelled their wedding on 12 days notice, too late to get refunds. In a move not unlike the parable, the bride and her parents held the reception and invited the homeless. In an All Headline News report, the bride was quoted saying
With the notoriety of the runaway bride, I would like people to know that these things do happen, and there is another outlet. The money is spent. But oh my Gosh,we had so much fun!
Now that's a radically welcoming wedding banquet (see post below for radical welcome).
