WORSHIP
Fifth Sunday of Easter, May 15th at 10am
This week’s story from Acts pushes us to consider and re-evaluate how the very practices that have distinguished us as a religious community can become an impediment. There is a fine balance between remaining true to our roots and at the same time being open to new growth. The Spirit breaks open the community of Christ to move in new ways. How and where we set boundaries in Christian community is always subject to the gracious nature of God’s love. How can we beyond boundaries and draw the circle wider so that everyone belongs?
 
Scripture: Acts 11:1-18

FINAL THOUGHT…

“I think human beings must have faith or must look for faith, otherwise our life is empty, empty. To live and not to know why the cranes fly, why children are born, why there are stars in the sky. You must know why you are alive, or else everything is nonsense, just blowing in the wind.
— Anton Chekhov
