Palmer Cantler: Table Etiquette

Luke 14:1, 7-14

12th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

September 01, 2019

The Rev. Palmer Cantler (UMC)


The past eight months I have been planning the trickiest, most time-consuming event I will probably ever plan: my wedding. By the end of this month, I will get to marry the love of my life. However, I do not know if I am looking forward more to marrying him or being done with wedding planning. When we first got engaged back in January, my mom gifted me a couple of things to help with the process. The first gift was a binder to hold all of the contracts, the second gift a notebook to keep track of to-dos and thank you notes, and the last gift was a wedding etiquette manual by Emily Post. As much as I have appreciated and used each of these gifts, the last is as useful as it is stress-inducing. Emily Post's legacy is answering any question that you might ever have, and some you would never have thought of, with regards to etiquette. Her manual has taught me the proper way to address inner and outer envelopes, choose flowers and write thank you notes. Every time we came across a dilemma or were unsure of the traditions, Emily was there to answer my questions. While we have not always followed her guidance, it has been reassuring to have this manual to fall back on.

The Rev. Henry Brinton (PCUSA)


On a warm July day, a Methodist pastor sat down for dinner in the apartment of two Coptic Christians. The pastor's name was Harley, and his hosts were Youssef and Sofia. They were a husband and wife who operated a jewelry store in the town of Occoquan, Virginia. As they sat down, Youssef offered a prayer. "Be with us, Lord Jesus, as you were with your first followers in the breaking of the bread. Bless this food to our use and ourselves to your service. Amen."

Dock Hollingsworth: How Big Is the Church?

The Rev. Dr. Dock Hollingsworth (CBF)

Dr. Dock Hollingsworth says the ways of church life have changed over the centuries since the book of Acts--back then they had no building, constitution, by-laws, or even a pastor; they had the presence of the Holy Spirit and each other. Churches today can rediscover their connection with the early church, and find how truly big the church is.

I'm With the Band

The Rev. Dr. Lillian Daniel (UCC)

Have you ever been to a wedding reception where the bride sang in her own wedding band? Musicians do things differently. The wedding reception was held upon the stage of a grand old theater in Buffalo, New York. Elegantly set tables dotted the wooden floor, with its stage markings and velvet curtains swagged casually aside.
