April 27, 2015 (Acts 11:1-18)

“What God has made clean, you are not to call profane.” One of the first problems within the Church was what to require the gentiles to do, i.e. did they have to become Jewish first and keep say the dietary laws? This may not seem to resonate with us today, i. e. we don’t even think about those dietary laws in Torah. But, we do often discriminate between those like us and those not like us, between the “ins” and the “outs.” Lord, help us to see everyone as our brothers and sisters.
