Online Worship: Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Dress codes are complicated. On one hand, we teach our children not to judge a book by its cover and we try to avoid shaming people for their clothing choices. By the same token, we can’t escape the fact that our clothes say something to other people. We still “dress for success” and worry about “what not to wear.” Today Jesus tells a troubling story about a king who enforces a harsh dress code at a banquet. What can this possibly teach us about the kingdom of God?

This worship service includes Communion as an extension of the table at St. Peter’s on Sunday, October 8, 2023. You may want to have bread/cracker and wine/juice ready before you watch. The Bible readings for this worship service are Isaiah 25:1-9; Psalm 23; Philippians 4:1-9; and Matthew 22:1-14.
