5th Sunday of Easter

Whose Coats Are We Holding?

Sunday, May 7 at 11am | Bulletin

“…and the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul.” Acts 7:58
I’ve always been intrigued by this throwaway line in the story of the stoning of Stephen.  Saul (who would later become Paul) didn’t throw a stone.  Saul didn’t kill Stephen.  He just took care of their coats so others could do it.
Whose coats do we hold onto? What acts of horror do we support and enable, by what we say or fail to say, what we do or fail to do?
On Sunday, let’s think of these things together.
With love,
