Easter 4

The 60’s produced gatherings of like minded individuals that would pack themselves into one location, supporting each other in their “new” free beliefs.

While the radical 60’s wouldn’t exactly be what we would consider appropriate behavior in their communal situations, the book of Acts speaks of a communal situation.

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. … And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.

This communal living is called the church, where we are to learn the one true faith together, receive God’s gifts in worship together and have everything in common.

This is true communion with God and with one another, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, Nebraska. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn
