I hope you have a chance to enjoy this beautiful and fresh afternoon. Summer is such a great gift. Today we see the follow up on Peter's meeting with Cornelius. Peter's behavior was shocking to other people in the community, and they let him know. At the same time, the Spirit's fingerprints are all over this, so as soon as they hear his story he can see that it is from God. That's really the key to change in the church: we need to discern where God is calling us. It's not always as clear as it is in this case, but we are disciples, so our job is to follow. That means not being so excited about doing something different that we forget to listen to God, and not so attached to the way we did things before or do things now that we forget to listen.
