okay here's the scoop:

Read this last night........"Then Jesus said to his host, "When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous." Luke 14:12-14

Which in turn reminded me of this...."Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.' So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. " Matthew 22

Well, Justin and I have decided to take these (at least the first one) really seriously. We love to host BBQ's and dinners at our apartment. Instead of hosting one at our apartment (which is so small and couldn't hold ANYONE) we will be hosting a BBQ at the park across the street and invite the homeless and anyone who wants to come. We are even going to make up fancy invitations and pass them out to the homeless folks that we see/know. We of course will also be inviting our friends to come and help plan, welcome, and bring some eats.

This is VERY VERY VERY exciting to me and i can not wait!!
