Sustained By God- Acts 2:42-47
Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood was an unlikely show to be on the air (not to mention the longevity of it; more than 30 years!). This show had to “compete” against action cartoons (Batman, He-Man, Thundercats, etc.), life’s hardships (assassination of Dr. King and Sen. Kennedy, the Vietnam war), and the relentless change in television. It’s set was low production value, its characters where “simple puppets,” and Mr. Rogers was an atypical “lead man” (a Presbyterian minister). Yet, Mr. Rogers believed that love is abundant and needs to be shared. That was the fuel for the show: LOVE.
Christianity, in its early stages, was an unlikely movement to succeed: led by working class and illiterate people and persecuted by one of the most powerful empires of human history: the Roman Empire. Yet, “the believers devoted themselves to the apostle’s teachings, to shared meals and prayers.” This unlikely rowdy bunch transformed the world and “The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved.”
From Alfonso Flores
In October 2018 we started two in-home groups. Teaching about the church, the body of God and the beginning of the Methodist Church. Maria Elena Luna Acosta opened her home on October 5th, one of her main questions was “What is the Methodist church? I want to learn more about the church and its history. Because I want to know why you are there. I want to feel the same feeling, when you talk about the Methodist church.”
And for me that was something special because someone wanted to know about the place, where my family and I worship God.
1 Samuel 7:12
Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, a saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.” We have been working hard and knocking on doors sharing the world of God, saying “Thus far the Lord has helped us.”
