We talked about the story of Phillip and the Eunuch from the book of Acts, where the Eunuch is reading from the Bible. After they have a conversation and, I am hoping, a dialog about the scripture, they find water in the desert and there is baptism.
We have not been using the lectionary for the month of May because of our sermon series on “Broadway’s Welcome Statement” so we did not hear a message on the passage that is labeled as the story of “Doubting Thomas.” I feel for the guy! I love the story! I also love his courage!
So, last Sunday we heard from Paul’s letter to the church in Galatians. It’s always a good practice to remember that we’re actually reading someone else’s two-thousand-year-old mail when we’re reading one of Paul’s letters. Even though they didn’t have FedEx back in those days, the New Testament is still basically half mail.
