Peter said, “God has shown me that I should not call anyone profane or unclean.” - Acts 10:28 (NRSV)
At 61, with a new degree, I was discouraged. I had not received the job I had applied for with great hope. But then I received a phone call from the monastery where I’d been on a waiting list for a retreat. They had an opening that very weekend.
What do I call profane that God blesses?

The Upper Room lifts the spirits of residents I serve as a correctional chaplain. Christians and non-Christians read the devotions, reminding them of an alternative path to a loving God that will walk alongside them through the good and ugly of life.”
The Upper Room Chaplains’ Ministry provides military, VA hospital, and prison chaplains copies of the daily devotional for their ministry. Give today to support the Chaplains’ Ministry.
