“We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.”
Welcome to believers and questioners, and to questioning believers.
Here’s what is happening at Salem
This weekend… August 25, 2016
That once again Luke situates a narrative about Jesus at a meal suggests the importance of the meal gathering for his readers. Jesus’ call for generous hospitality to those who cannot reciprocate is found only in Luke and suggests that the evangelist, who assumes that some Christians are wealthy, urges that they will welcome the poor at their meals. The final sentence expresses the Jewish belief that one reason for the final resurrection was as reward to righteous people who died before God’s final judgment.
Invited and inviting—that is the nature of the church. By God’s grace in holy baptism we have a place at the banquet table of the Lord. When, by the power of that same Spirit, humility and mutual love continue among us, the church can be more inviting still.
