Out of the Box Peter

Out of the Box Peter

Feb 09, 2020

Preacher: Rev. Dr. Sarah Calvert


Today’s guest preacher was Rev. Dr. Sarah Calvert, Superintendent of the Arlington District of the United Methodist Church. She used the text from Acts – the story of Peter and his vision on the rooftop that led him to understand that his message was for all people, not just Jews – to remind us that we have to be open to having our comfortable faith “boxes” challenged, expanded, even demolished when God calls us. As much as we want to think we are right where we are supposed to be, God may have different plans. We need to be calm and open so that God’s call won’t be a reason for panic and frustration, but a reason for joy and excitement. Pastor Marcus read the Scripture preceding the sermon. The “box” Rev. Calvert referred to early on is a moving box Pastor Beth used in her Children's Sermon just prior to the Scripture reading.
