HAPPY NEW YEAR! January is the time of year for making new resolutions. Have you made yours? Have you ever done something new that was a challenge for you or made a change that stretched your comfort zone? Perhaps for you the challenge might be a diet or exercise or a more austere budget.
In the Bible, the followers of Jesus found that they were often challenged to move in new directions. This week Peter finds himself associating with people from a culture he never imagined he would befriend. As the two cultures come together for dialogue about religion, Jesus Christ breaks down a huge wall that had existed for centuries. It’s good stuff, and as our nation becomes increasingly diverse, it might have a helpful word to say to us. I’m excited about it! Come join us. See you Sunday at 10:30.
To prepare read: Acts 10, Isaiah 57:15-19, Isaiah 60:1-5, 9
