 In this year of Parish Renewal throughout our Diocese, our Bishop has asked that all congregations take time this fall to study the Book of Acts, the second part of Luke’s history of the birth of the Christian faith, beginning with The Gospel According to Luke and continuing with the story of the founding of the early Church in Acts.

The two key questions for us, as we gather to reflect on the message of Acts are:
       What are the core values and practices of a prayer-centered and mission focused community as illustrated in the Acts of the Apostles?
What and how would our church/community/group look like in light of reading Acts as an impetus for change and growth in prayer and mission? How could the ministry of our committees, commissions and our diocese be different after reading and studying Acts?
       A good resource is: N.T. Wright, Acts for Everyone, John Knox/Westminster Press
       At Shrewsbury, we will be looking at particularly relevant sections of Acts (but there’s nothing to prevent us from reading the entire book, if we wish!).
       Sessions will be led by participants, and there will be plenty of time to review the passages in light of the questions above.
PLEASE TAKE TIME TO JOIN US IN THIS DIOCESAN-WIDE EXPLORATION OF WHO WE ARE AS A COMMUNITY OF FAITH, WHAT WE ARE CALLED TO DO, AND HOW.
