Throwing A Party

Jesus said: “When she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, and says to them, 'I am so happy I found the coin I lost. Let us celebrate!’” (Luke 15:9. GNB). In other words: “Let us have a party!”

Are you one of those persons who throw out a party at every little joyous event? Do you easily get excited about beautiful things happening to people around you? Are you a fun person to be with?

Our Lectionary Gospel Reading for this week is found in Luke 15:1-10. Jesus reminds us that heaven celebrates when people encounter God’s joy and “the wanderer comes home.” The parables also remind us that we need to celebrate, I mean, really organize a fiesta bonanza and declare a homecoming that rattles the very doors of heaven. Are you up for the challenge? Do you have your trumpet ready or your electric guitar set on Metal-Rock sounding jubilation? Who are you going to invite to this party?
