We are on Chapter 2 of Galatians- but really we are just picking up on an interrupted thought in a letter Paul meant to be read as a whole. (Reminder: this was a letter meant to be read in full with the nuance of the time, reference to stories that would be well known, and to a specific group of people!) In this text, we get a glimpse into the messiness of the early Christian church… The messiness that continues today mostly because it IS complicated and people ARE going to have a human response when trying to make sense of their experiences. We look at what this argument means in regard to a “common table”. How can we keep our distinctive identities but create a space of welcome? It’s a 2000 year old question and we’ve got to find that common rallying point!
