from Acts 11
him did the newly formed Christian Church response to famine; plague? 🦠??
‘During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) 29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. 30 This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul.’
How, why, did the disciples in Antioch give?
As the first called Christians, they begin our model…
… they sent gifts-gifts from small in size to great- all their gifts now come to us as examples…this Lent give to others; leave yourself as you much as you able …to be filled by your giving; by holding water; by seeing and hearing; listening and loving others
