The Second Sunday of Trinity calls us to the feast prepared by Wisdom (Proverbs 9:1-10) which knits the family of mankind together in the peace of forgiveness which is found only in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:13-22). Jesus calls us to the Father’s feast of forgiveness here and now within Christ’s Church where God the Holy Spirit daily and richly applies to sinners the blood of Jesus. Sermon Text: Luke 14:15-24. Sermon Theme: “Neglecting The Feast – What’s Your Excuse?” Preached for the Second Sunday after Trinity, Father’s Day, 21-June-2020 at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, by Rev. Nathan J. Rusert.
