Now that I have my sermons in a more easily-uploadable format (Thanks, Reid!), I figured they would become regular content here.

Oops. Clearly, it is sermon time again.
We’re in the midst of a series on Acts of the Apostles. We’re basically looking at one chapter per week. Below are my thoughts on Acts 12. Again, I don’t print my sermons here because I think they are auditory events and as such need to be heard if they are to be fully experienced after the fact. Also, I generally don’t have a full manuscript to post. So there’s that.
Follow the series on Acts: Chapter 9, Chapter 10, Chapter 11
My thesis for Acts chapter 12 is that this story reminds us that the Kin-dom of God is a place where all, even and especially “Outsiders” belong. That needs to be true of the church too, if it is to be faithful to the Way of Jesus.
At least that is what I was trying to say. Let me know what you hear.
