I've been around for awhile, but I have never, ever thought of a sandwich like this! What would you call this, A breakfast burger??? Next time I feel adventurous, I will have to try this one; although my wife might object to all the cholesterol. To me, this is just one more example that even in my age of retirement, there are new things out there; ideas that fascinate me and arise in me a spirit of curiosity like when I was a kid on the farm. Which brings me to memory of a group of people who were always looking for something new, something exciting to consider. Lets read for awhile from the book of Acts...
WEB: Acts Chapter 17
 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him as he saw the city full of idols.  So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout persons, and in the marketplace every day with those who met him.  Some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers also were conversing with him. Some said, “What does this babbler want to say?”
Others said, “He seems to be advocating foreign deities,” because he preached Jesus and the resurrection.
 They took hold of him, and brought him to the Areopagus, saying, “May we know what this new teaching is, which is spoken by you?  For you bring certain strange things to our ears. We want to know therefore what these things mean.”  Now all the Athenians and the strangers living there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell or to hear some new thing.
 Paul stood in the middle of the Areopagus, and said, “You men of Athens, I perceive that you are very religious in all things.  For as I passed along, and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription: ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ What therefore you worship in ignorance, this I announce to you.  The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn’t dwell in temples made with hands,  neither is he served by men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things.  He made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the surface of the earth, having determined appointed seasons, and the boundaries of their dwellings,  that they should seek the Lord, if perhaps they might reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.  ‘For in him we live, and move, and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also his offspring.’  Being then the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold, or silver, or stone, engraved by art and design of man.  The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked. But now he commands that all people everywhere should repent,  because he has appointed a day in which he will judge the world in righteousness by the man whom he has ordained; of which he has given assurance to all men, in that he has raised him from the dead.”
 Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked; but others said, “We want to hear you again concerning this.”
 Thus Paul went out from among them.  But certain men joined with him, and believed, among whom also was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
Its hard for most of us to imagine the world of the first century. Life was unbelievably hard for most, but pleasant for a few (wait a minute, that sounds like today). Well, polytheism was different anyway. There was a god for everything; they reflected the nature of human beings in all aspects, but were immensely powerful (or so people thought). Paul introduced a new concept;one and only one God. Perhaps most of them could understand a god they just didn't know about, but life after death was a bit much for most of them. However, some did believe; some took in Paul's message and followed him. People after my own heart, seekers; willing to try new things and expand the horizon of their understanding. I can't help but wonder, though, how they would have responded to a hamburger breakfast sandwich???
