Psalm: 33
Old Testament: 1 Sam 12:1-5
New Testament: Acts 20:17-35

Keep watch over yourselves and over all the flock, of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God that he obtained with the blood of his own Son. (Acts 20:28)

If there is one thing I’ve noticed from the readings selected for today…it’s that the Christian community must take care of itself and be committed to living out the Gospel and good governance for each other. Kind of appropriate as we are heading into Diocesan Synod.

My inner cynic sometimes gets the better of me….but I am always interested in the idea of what would happen if the Church actually read Acts before heading into decision making and policy….Hmmm…..+
