A45: The Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost, Year A (World Communion Sunday) (2017)

Steve Eason

Dr. Steve Eason, retired Presbyterian (PCUSA) pastor, author, pastoral counselor, teacher, and consultant, sets aside the lectionary readings for the day in order to preach a sermon for World Communion Sunday called, “A Table with 7,417,622,501 Seats” (yes, that’s how many people there were in the world at the time this sermon was preached). If you need a text to go with it, Steve suggests Matthew 26:26-29, but mostly he wants you to know that every one of those seven billion plus people is part of the family of God. What a good thing to remember on World Communion Sunday!
