Sunday Morning 8/15/10

We had a great time in the Lord Sunday morning.  The sermon text is taken from Acts chapter 10 and is a bit of a challenge to some of the traditional thinking regarding this passage and the meaning of Peter’s vision.  Listen by pressing play below and follow along with the notes if you like.  May God richly bless you through His Word.
