Sermon for the Sixth Sunday of Easter: May 14, 2023

'Paul’s appeal worked, the Gospel bore fruit, even in the place where Greek philosophy held sway. And it bore fruit because Paul came to common ground with his hearers, piqued their curiosity, and made his confession, encouraging them that what he was saying really wasn’t so different after all. They could then see, if they had the vision to do so, that the confrontation to which they were called was not a face-off with an angry man, but with a merciful, just, and loving God.'
