In this week's sermon:
The Church flourished under the direction of the Spirit and the wise, humble leadership of God appointed leaders. Leaders help show the way and point to The Way.
We’re in a sermon series called, “Scattered - Being the Church everywhere we go”, exploring the early days of the Church in the book of Acts. Those days were highly disruptive and uncertain times for Jesus' disciples, with persecutions and other hardships, caught in the crossfire of political and nationalistic strife - yet we see the Church experiencing explosive growth. As we find ourselves now in similarly uncertain times: our lives disrupted and scattered by the Covid-19 pandemic, with the threat of many other issues and political turmoils across our nation and world - it seems appropriate to be looking back to see what we can learn from the experiences of our ancient relatives in the faith and how God moved by His Spirit through His people to expand and strengthen His eternal kingdom throughout the temporary kingdoms of this world.
