"Guess who's coming to dinner?"

After four weeks as the new Director of Communications and Young Adult Ministries at FUMC Arlington, TX, I received my first opportunity to preach the good news at the Celebration worship service.

My text was from the 11th chapter from the Book of Acts, as Peter is called to task by the Jerusalem Church for thinking it was 'ok' to sit and eat with a Gentile family.  "But wait, there's more!", he says to the Church, "Salvation is theirs as well!"

Our very own entrance into God's Kingdom as Christians today was opened and had a doorstop permanently put in by Peter (with the power of the Holy Spirit) in our passage for Sunday.

Below is the video of my sermon, "Guess who is coming to dinner?".  What a blessing it was to have the opportunity to preach!
