So this Sunday we are looking again into the book of Acts. This time we are looking at the possibility of a changed life. In particular, we are looking at St. Peter and his experience with the vision that told him he could eat anything, even lobster! Which is a good story but what does it have to do with us. The short answer is a lot. There are many things we can take from this story, not least of which is that lives can be changed dramatically even in the context of a spiritual life. Let us not forget that Peter was a very religious person. He was not a neophyte, he was someone who knew how to be religious in a very demanding g religion. It can be very tempting for us to think that once you have settled in your religion there is no room for change, at least not dramatic change; not much could be further from the truth.
If Peter could make that profound a shift into a new, radically changed, life; why can’t we? The short answer is that we can.
