Dear Logos Family,
“And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” Acts 2:46-47
There is no doubt food and fellowship bring people together! It’s as true today as it was in the early church. Believers went to church together in the temple and then they ate together in their homes and celebrated the Lord’s Supper.
Eating together in homes met a very tangible need in the young Church because many of the new Christians and visitors were poor and having a meal at a person’s home was a real treat. It’s not by accident that Jesus prayed, “give us this day, our daily bread.” For many getting enough to eat was a daily mission.
I know we miss our times of Sunday fellowship and food at Logos. It certainly lifted the spirits and comforted the tummy. Fret not brothers and sisters. It won’t be long until we are all able to meet together again and enjoy food and fellowship. Until then, please sign up to come to worship! If you can’t make it this week, I’ll look forward to seeing you next week.
BTW, for those of you who knew that I received a Nespresso machine for my birthday back in November, I want you to know it is used a lot! I have many friends who enjoy coming over and drinking coffee from the Nespresso. My South African friend “Louie” had two “Bianco Leggeros” yesterday. He likes to steam the milk and add sugar. It reminds him of living in Europe.
Fellowshipping over coffee or food spikes my joy! My joy meter sky rockets when I am around people who know Jesus and we can talk about matters of the heart. Louie and I agreed that all those “old guys” sitting around tables at coffee shops really know what’s important. When we were younger, we made fun of the old guys. Now we get it! The fellowship with other human beings changes us. Our brains get “high” on the dopamine of fellowship.
As Spring quickly approaches and as we wait for the buds to open and the leaves to return to the trees, so too we wait with great anticipation to the time we can be together again fellowshipping together and eating delicious food in the church basement!
I know my gratitude for fellowship has grown over these last twelve months!
Soon to be together again around the banqueting table!
