“He made no distinction between us and them, for by faith he purified their hearts. Why, then, are you now putting God to the test by placing on the shoulders of the disciples a yoke that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear?” Acts 15:9-10

Lord God, Your church is a community that reaches out to all. Right from the start, there was friction between the Jews and Gentiles. Both groups had to struggle to be able to be part of one community. The same is true today, as new peoples join our communities. Help us to hold on to what is essential and to welcome them, as we would welcome You.
