2018-08-26 The Gospel in Society

August 29, 2018


Our reading from Acts refresh our minds about the start of the early church that was persecuted and up against a lot of challenges. When we are realistic about our own time it might be time that we acknowledge that although we are living thousands of years later in completely different times, the church and us with the church, are up against a lot. For us in South Africa the persecution is not what our brothers and sisters in Ethiopia, Sudan, Asia and the Middle East are facing, but the Evil one is against the church and trying to derail it even here and now.
