Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Good advice

At the closing Eucharist after yesterday's council meeting, we celebrated the Feast of St. James (transferred). The first reading was Acts 15:12-22-- a discussion among the apostles concerning requirements for Gentile converts. The nervous lector solemnly informed us that James told those present "...that we should not trouble those Gentiles who are turning to God, but we should write to them to abstain only from things polluted by idiots..."

And I'm sure you all read the psalm responsibly.

Oh, of course.

However, there was no concern this time about sexual immortality.

oh sing and dance, if only one COULD abstain from things polluted by idiots.
Our intercessor at the early service summoned to confession all those who have "repented of their neighbours" -- he skipped a line...works for me too!

Wait, that's not what's actually in the reading?
