Palmer Cantler: Table Etiquette

Thursday August 22, 2019
The Rev. Palmer Cantler says that in Luke 14, Jesus seems to presage Emily Post’s protocol for dinner seating. But his lesson is much deeper, focusing on the Kingdom of God. It’s not table etiquette, but table fellowship in view here. Jesus’s words are not instructions about seating charts, but a breaking open of our need to feel exalted for a lesson on humility.
