THE SATURDAY GATHERING IN HALIFAX
On Sunday we were thinking fo Stephen, but recognised that his life and ministry, indeed witness was amiodst a time of turmoil in which there was defensiveness, angry response to the Gospel of Christ; the good news spreads and people respond, so there is rapid growth. To this in the congregational life, some are being overlooked. Things are stretched, but growth happens! As much as Stephen was 'brimming with grace and the Spirit' so the overflow of the good news gathered more and more. Not that we desire to re-create or mimic Acts, but more to be encouraged at what God is doing at such margins. Here is a fresh expression in Halifax that is such a good example.
