How to Throw a Banquet for the Poor…

This is a syndicated post from On This Rock. [Read the original article...]

...Just do it!

“When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors…Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” 
- Jesus Christ (Luke 14:12-14)

Every Tuesday this takes place at Annunciation from noon to 2 as our food pantry men and women also, in addition to groceries and clothing, provide a warm home-cooked meal to all those who come. It is miraculous. You are always welcome to join the effort. Set up will begin taking place Monday evening, and you are always welcome to bring by a casserole or some other food for our “Annunciation Banquet”
