I hope you have a chance to enjoy this lovely day. Our reading today begins an interesting episode in Paul's ministry. Most of the time we see Paul begin his ministry in a new place by going to the synagogue. That makes sense because he could expect to find people there who were interested in spiritual things. In today's story he is in Athens, and in some ways the spiritual center of Athens was philosophy and the market, so that's where Paul starts.
We'll notice that Paul explains himself differently because his audience doesn't share his Jewish background. We too need to pay attention to our audience when we proclaim the gospel. Other people we meet might not know the story of Jesus. They might never have grown up in a church, or, more difficult, they might have had bad experiences in church that make tradition a block to faith. When we want to share our faith, we need to consider who we are speaking with so our message will make sense to them.
