Summary: Peter, ever the leader in trouble, returns after visiting the centurion to quarrels over the rightness of his actions. Peter explains his dream, God telling him three times not to reject clean things, and the dissenters turn and rejoice. Similarly, Barnabas finds joy in welcoming Gentile Christians in far-off cities. Finally, the church sends relief aid to cities in a famine.
Response: The church has disagreements that end in joy. Connections are found between churches. The Church serves as the hand of God in helping the downtrodden. I want my church to be like this!
