A wild and wooly, mad and holy Spirit for ALL
“What God has made clean, you must not call profane.” Peter has visions of (forbidden) food while hungry and praying on a rooftop in Joppa, but it turns out to be far more than just a hunger-induced delusion. It turns out to be inspiration for him and his gatekeeping community to get out of the Spirit’s way (or INTO the Christ-Spirit’s Way) in not withholding belonging from unlikely others. Listen as Pastor Megan reflects on what this means for our embodied life as a community of radical hospitality, particularly in relationship with with our queer, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming folx.
