This past Sunday, our message focused on being the church. In the early and forming days, the church congregated both in the temple and in homes for worship, prayer, song, fellowship, and sharing meals and resources. Despite being persecuted, their hearts overflowed with hope, joy, and gladness as they placed their faith in a powerful and loving God.
As a challenge, we were encouraged to reach out to someone we didn’t know well and invite them to share a meal with us. If you missed the service, consider yourself invited to participate in this challenge. We’d love to hear your story about whom you invited and how it went.
I also loved that you willingly moved and sat by someone different, displacing you from your comfort zone. The point of the activity was to get us moving out of our comfort zone and being open to what and where God may be calling us.
Thank you, Church!
