Act Out of the Faith | Act Out Your Faith
How can we possibly connect a first-century book with our twenty-first century techie lives? What do ancient traditions and a first-generation encounter with Jesus of Nazareth have to do with you and me today?
During the Easter season, we’re going to think about these questions, using the New Testament book of Acts as our guide.
Our Presiding Bishop, the Most Rev. Michael Curry, asked us to join “The Good Book Club” and during Lent, to read the gospel of Luke. He then asked us to read the second half of Luke-Acts, the book of Acts, during the Easter season.
So you didn’t read Luke? Don’t worry! You can read Acts. Acts is like a great adventure story—or a lot of adventure stories. Here’s the link to check out the Good Book Club: http://www.goodbookclub.org/
For seven weeks, we’ll reflect on what it means to Act Out of the (historic, Christian) Faith, and what it looks like—in real life and in real time—to Act Out Your Faith.
