The Precarity of Peace

ACTS 15:22-41

Malcolm Foley


“Unity is not a given. Nor is it easy to maintain. But it’s worth fighting for.”

How much more of a joy would it be if categories which we created in order to separate ourselves from one another  (class, race, gender, whatever) could actually be images of unity? Men and women working in the nursery, Black and White praise dancing to music together, rich and poor enjoying the Lord’s Supper as one body.”

The unassailable, impervious and omnipotent Creator of the universe, became temptable, piercable and weak. But He didn’t just become piercable, temptable, and weak. He actually was tempted! He actually was pierced! He actually lost!…Or so it might have seemed.”
