RE Verse reading–Acts 6:1-7, 11:27-30 (day six) “And the twelve called together the whole community of the disciples” (6:2) A very practical lesson. The twelve called the church together and they came! Like a business meeting –only with more people. To avoid the fracturing effects of rumor and racial prejudice, a decision was required. The Apostles knew that they needed the full support of the congregation. The solution (in an age before E mail or “The Table”) was to call a meeting. As a Pastor, I know this territory well. Significant challenges are ahead for FBC. Wonderful opportunities! But after prayer and seeking the guidance of the Lord, the next thing that we will need is to meet together and unite our hearts re. God’s direction for us. October 28 is one of those “all-together” moments. The annual “State of the Church” congregational meeting allows an opportunity for our whole family to to think together. When called together will you come?
