So Oprah wants to have Jesus over for a meal. Story here.
I, too, would have Jesus at the top of my list of dream guests for a meal (I don't know if I'd serve fried chicken, though). Think of the life-changing opportunity to be in the physical presence of God's only begotten son, who died on the cross for my sins. Wow! Amazing!
My table has six other chairs, though. So who else is on the guest list? Vladimir Lenin? Billy Graham? Charles Darwin? Albert Einstein? Mother Teresa? Adam Smith? Muhammad? Martin Luther? Martin Luther King, Jr.? Aristotle? Confucius? Helen Keller? Friedrich Nietzsche? Galileo? Sigmund Freud? Adolph Hitler? Socrates? Karl Marx? Nelson Mandela? Julius Caesar? Moses? Buddha? Michelangelo? Alexander the Great? Wolfgang Mozart? Thomas Edison? Oprah? Loved ones who have died? Sports heroes? Movie stars? Billionaires? Legal giants?
And I thought paring down our wedding guest list was a challenge!
How do you respond to Tina Fey's question: "If you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, in the history of the world ...." Fascinating to think about, yes?
