Seems like Paul is supposed to be sort of hiding out in Athens while he waits for Silas and Timothy to catch up with him. Which he does in a typical Paul-ish way by arguing with everyone he meets in the town square. However abrasive his style, his message: “the God you are looking for, the God you dont even have a name for, the God who is in danger of getting lost in the forest of all the other things you are worshipping – let me tell you about that God…” is one that we could for sure take with us into our town squares (shopping malls? coffee shops?) today.
Or, maybe you are preaching about what Jesus commands us to do? 1 Peter is an option again this week. I, for one, have given 1 Peter the short shrift this time around – anyone want to rectify that oversight?
