Monday, 4th Week in Easter Homily

“This morning, I suspect, I have a very focused congregation that is hoping against hope that my words will be brief. Our seminarians have exams to take and papers to complete. Faculty members have exams to grade, papers to read, and meetings to attend. Administrators are busy wrapping up this academic year and Board members would like to our meeting underway. Believe it or not, I have busy day ahead of me, as well. If you’re like me, you’re hoping everything will go according to plan.

“But our plans are not always God’s plans. In the reading from the Acts of the Apostles, Peter faces disruption: He is confronted by Jewish converts who were disturbed not that there were Gentile converts but rather that Peter had “entered the house of uncircumcised people and ate with them.” This group of converts was struggling to reconcile their newfound faith with the requirements of the Mosaic Law they had practices their whole life long.”
