Sermon: Everything In Common

Slide3“Rethink Church, Reboot Church: Everything in Common”

(September 20, 2009) We begin a sermon series examining the practices of the early church in Acts 2:42-47, using their example as a starting point for ways we might not only rethink church but “reboot” it by going back to the beginning. We learn in Acts 2 that the first Christians held everything in common, pooling their resources so every need was met. How might we rise to this difficult challenge? What does it mean to live together in community globally, nationally, locally, within our churches and homes? (Acts 2:42-47, Deuteronomy 15:7-11, Mark 10:17-31)

part one of a four-part series, “Rethink Church, Reboot Church,” examining the practices of the early church: pooling resources to meet needs, observing a daily discipline of worship, eating together as celebration, and living the message with their lives.
