upside down

Saturday October 4th,  Matthew 21:  31 "Which of the two did what his father wanted?" "The first," they answered.   Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. 32 For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.  Welcome to the new church of Christ.  It is filled with outsiders, the lowly, the tax collectors and the sinners, but also often the salt of the earth.  It is the place where gay couples teach married couples what commitment is all about even when marriage is not available to them as a couple.  It is a place where drug users and abusers teach the upright and uptight what grace is all about because it is the only thing that has given them a chance.  It is a place where the poor teach the rich what giving is all about because their life has revolved around a community that can only exist in its presence.  It is a place where God has turned our world upside down with three simple words.  Saved by Grace.
