We began our Evolution of Church series with the experience of Pentecost. We were reminded of the story of God’s people as recorded in Acts 2:44-45: “Everyone around was in awe—all those wonders and signs done through the apostles! And all the believers lived in a wonderful harmony, holding everything in common. They sold whatever they owned and pooled their resources so that each person’s need was met.” (from The Message) When we respond to this call from God, we can make a much needed witness to the community.
In his book “The Promise of Paradox” Parker Palmer reminds us that “We need to find the courage to assert and act on the hope that community remains a human possibility, because only by acting ‘as if’ can we create a future fit for human habitation.” (p 72)
How might your longing for community be met by God at The Table? How might your participation in your Kitchen Table take you closer and deeper to the heart of God?
