Anthony Castle- Beggars’ Banquet; God’s Table and a Better World

“The Parable of the Banquet for the Poor, the poetic picture of this sacred feast, teaches us that the Kingdom of God is community where everyone can come to the table and a model of equality.

This community is already at that table; every Sunday we gather here around the bread and the wine, every time support groups meet at this place to share food and coffee, every week members of this community meet in each other’s homes, every day that activists within this congregation work to improve the living conditions of the poor.

Every time we work to make the world a better place for those who need it most, that is God’s table, and that is the Kingdom of God.”
