Humans are created “in the image of God”. There’s lots of theories about what that means, but a helpful one is that humans are created with the ability to relate to others. Look at the parable Jesus told about the wedding banquet: there are different ways to respond to God’s invitation. Most of us (at church) have accepted God’s invitation, and we’re at the banquet. But do we have anything to say to God? Or are we like the guest who was speechless – who ended up in a different place?

Listen to the sermon preached by the Revd Bryce Amner on Sunday 15 October 2017.

The scripture readings are Matthew 22:1-14, Genesis 1 and Exodus 32.
