“It is good to be near God,” says the composer of Psalm 73. “I have made the Lord God my refuge, to tell of all your works.” How are we “near God” in our workaday lives? How do we tell others of all God’s works? Good questions for the Sunday before Labor Day!
The Acts of the Apostles (that comes after the Gospel of John) tells how the Christian faith took root as a community in Jerusalem, but then spread far beyond—to Greece and Rome, north Africa and throughout modern-day Turkey. The book also tells of the challenges the early Christians faced—trying to live faithfully in the shadow of the Empire and also in keeping their communities together. Their stories are not unlike our stories in our time.
