Acts 10:1-33 is the story of two men, Peter the Apostle, a Jew who was a disciple and friend of Jesus, and Cornelius a Centurion in the Roman Army, who was seeking God. At this time, it was unlawful for a Jew to associate with or visit Gentiles (non-Jews), but both of these men had visions from God which brought them together and ultimately brought the Christian faith to the Gentiles (non-Jews). God said to Peter that what God has called clean, must not be called profane. We are challenged to ask what things does God want us to see differently to the traditions we have learnt?
