Lenten Reading Day 7--Misfits at Table Together
I had cataract surgery this week, so that put me behind posting bits from my Lenten reading. I'll try to catch up in the coming days. This one was from Thursday and it's by Lillian Daniels from the book we're using for a Lenten study this year, The Jesus Diaries: Who is Jesus to Me?:
"It was Jesus who gathered so many sinning misfits together at the table that I can picture myself belonging there too. And its that same welcoming Jesus that makes me long to share a table with Jews, Muslims and Buddhists as a foretaste of a heavenly banquet where there will be room for us all."
