Today is the last morning of our sermon series, "Woven Together." We have been talking about how God brings us together and that we are stronger in our faith when we do this life of faith together. What happens, though, when there are people with whom we do not want to be connected? What does God want us to do then?
I am positive that there were people in Jesus' life that disappointed him, and yet he still gathered them around the table for his last meal. If Jesus sought to connect even with the one who would betray him, then what is our call as we gather around that same table this morning?
My prayer is that God will speak to us, giving guidance and direction, so that we will be the people and the church that God calls us to be.
