Figuring It Out

This Sunday, I'll be preaching on Acts 11, where Peter gets a new directive from God for food that had previously been forbidden in his Jewish heritage. Stepping across that boundary allowed Peter to enter fellowship with Gentiles, who were eager to hear about Christ. It reminds me about how we all have to put away old habits if we are to move into our tomorrows. From gun violence to getting used to people who are different from us, letting go of old understandings and welcoming what is before us will determine how we succeed in tomorrow's world.
