Acts 2:14a, 36-41

Easter 3 - Year A

Acts 2:14a, 36-41

The model used here can be expanded.

Who have you “crucified”, demoted, defamed, destroyed, made invisible?

Coming to understand our participation in the world has wounded some or someone, we can choose a three-fold journey to a new wholeness or new meaning.
  1. change behavior
  2. enter belovedness in tandem with the crucified
  3. move into a new community together (community as gift)
This process toward wholeness changes our present generation. It doesn’t take us out of our time and space, but redeems both.

Is this something you think is doable? Then test it.

Who or what group do you have the most difficulty with? Can you put them in the place of the Jesus marker in this passage and proceed to walk the steps with them. (Yes it takes two to accomplish this, but without one to begin it certainly won’t work.)
