A king planned a party — a feast, rich and hearty.
He sent invitations to all of his guests.
So what could be better than getting a letter
and being invited and welcomed and blessed?
"My work needs attention," said one, "Not to mention,
My family is growing. There's so much to do."
"My farm," said another, "Is big, and — oh, brother —
I'm busy with hobbies I want to pursue."

"The dinner is ready! My guests are not worthy!"
The king told his servants when nobody came.
"So go search the alleys, the hills and the valleys,
and bring in the poor and the blind and the lame."
That day there was singing and halls that were ringing
with laughter and joy in that wonderful place.
For those who attended knew how they depended
upon the king's generous mercy and grace.

O God, you invite us! You seek to delight us.
Your table is ready for those who say "Yes!"
Do we make excuses when you want to choose us
to sit at your table, forgiven and blessed?
And, Lord, as you welcome us into your kingdom,
may we reach to welcome the world by your grace.
You love the outsider. Now may we reach wider
to welcome the world with your loving embrace.
