I’ve had some conversations, these past couple of weeks, with folks that have been taking my attention back to the beginnings of our Church family – that birthing at Pentecost and the formation and growth of the early Church in the time of the early apostles.  This month I want to revisit these stories of the early days, when the apostles were aggressively and faithfully establishing what Jesus had commissioned them to do.  I want to watch their lives and hear their words and see how God worked in them – it’s an inspiration to me . . .
 
And I’d like to believe that the commission to keep faithfully pushing ahead for the Kingdom of God in the world is as viable today, and for us, as it was for those brothers and sisters nearly 2,000 ears ago.  So travel with me as I tag along with those early brothers on their mission for Jesus.  Let’s ask ourselves if we’re on task with what Jesus left His followers to do – and let’s ask this mission question as both a personal question and as a church family question.  I’ll be asking that two-pronged question – how am I doing both in my personal life and in my Church ministry today?  Consciously ask good questions as we move along, and if you think it deserves some coffee and a probing conversation, give someone a call and dedicate some quality time to exploring what Jesus is saying to you about His mission in the world. 
 
I’m looking forward to this, and here we go again!  Thanks for joining me, again!
Shalom,
D.P.
