BIBLE PASSAGE — Now the apostles and the believers who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also accepted the word of God. So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers criticized him, saying, ‘Why did you go to uncircumcised men and eat with them?’ Then Peter began to explain it to them, step by step, saying, ‘I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision. There was something like a large sheet coming down from heaven, being lowered by its four corners; and it came close to me. As I looked at it closely I saw four-footed animals, beasts of prey, reptiles, and birds of the air. I also heard a voice saying to me, “Get up, Peter; kill and eat.” But I replied, “By no means, Lord; for nothing profane or unclean has ever entered my mouth.” But a second time the voice answered from heaven, “What God has made clean, you must not call profane.” This happened three times; then everything was pulled up again to heaven. At that very moment three men, sent to me from Caesarea, arrived at the house where we were. The Spirit told me to go with them and not to make a distinction between them and us. These six brothers also accompanied me, and we entered the man’s house. He told us how he had seen the angel standing in his house and saying, “Send to Joppa and bring Simon, who is called Peter; he will give you a message by which you and your entire household will be saved.” And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them just as it had upon us at the beginning. And I remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said, “John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” If then God gave them the same gift that he gave us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could hinder God?’ When they heard this, they were silenced. And they praised God, saying, ‘Then God has given even to the Gentiles the repentance that leads to life.’ — Fifth Sunday in Easter, Series C

A Warning to Church Secretaries Everywhere

Posted 713 days ago

This note just came into Agnus Day Central. Consider yourselves warned. If you start with Agnus Day, they might not let you stop.

Blessings to you! A few weeks ago our Pastor introduced me to your site and said it may be fun to try one of your strips in our weekly bulletins if I had space. For the past few weeks I have added one of your strips.Because we print in booklet form, the bulletins need to be either 16 or 20 pages and last week there was a lot of other information so I didn’t include one of your comics. Our Pastor told me he received comments from parishioners asking where the comic was. I just wanted to share the positive feedback and thank you for your ministry. In His Service, L.
