INCLUSION: “the action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure.” INCLUSION…all caps, bold italics because everyone seems to calling for it today…making a big deal about something that is novel to so many! HELLO! Wake up and smell the coffee! Or Better: wake up and read the Bible. INCLUSION IS NOT NEW! Just look at this passage about Peter and Cornelius! Now you may wonder how Frances McDormand in the 2018 Oscars and her role in “Three Billboards…” relates to this sermon, but I’m not going to tell you. You’ll have to listen for yourselves. Enjoy.
Reading – Acts 10:44-48
