    "The doors of the kingdom community are thrown wide open, and the invitation extends literally to all. But once you come in, there are standards. You can’t go on acting like you are not at an extraordinary party. The kingdom of heaven (Matthew 22:2) is a banquet, after all, and you’ve got to put on your party dress and get with the program. The kingdom music is playing, and it's time to get up on the dance floor. 
    "The problem with this guy [at the end of the Matthew reading] is not that he is not taking things seriously enough. No, his problem is a failure to party."
-Lance Pape, Brite Divinity School, Fort Worth, Texas

The Pledge:

While interacting with members of my own faith,
or ethnic, or gender community, or with others,
if I hear hateful comments from anyone
about members of any other community,
I pledge to stand up for the other
and speak up to challenge bigotry in any form.
