Well, we just finished a year-long study of the Gospel of Mark. It ends, of course, with the resurrected Jesus encountering his astonished disciples…

But what happens next? How does this band of followers respond? Actually, a more important question might be, How do you respond?

For the next few weeks I want to visit the Book of Acts– the continuation of the story of Jesus and his followers in history.

When this church began, it started with us looking at the Book of Acts together. I think it’s time we looked at it again. This time, however, we won’t go through the entire book– instead, we’ll talk about some selected events.

Because the Book of Acts tells the story of the beginning of the Church it’s probably a good idea for churches to revisit it from time to time. When we do, we can see our past, make sense of our present, and chart a course for our future.

Pretty cool, huh?

To prepare for Sunday, read Acts 1:1-12. Set aside some time reading and thinking about these verses. I know that you will be blessed.

Grace and peace,

Doug
