Peter Fitch examines the parable of the Wedding Banquet from Matthew 22. It seems harsh at first reading. Peter wonders whether historical context played a role in this. Then he looks at it through the eyes of Peter Rollins, who sees in it an invitation to a new community without hierarchical divisions based on ethnicity, economics, or gender. Finally, Peter Fitch wonders about this parable as an invitation to come to the table with all that we have, embracing the rich and important moments of life.
