Soon around FUMC of Arlington you will notice fliers that announce what our prelude meals will be and in which room we will hold the study on July 10, 11, 12, and 13—of 2011. Meals are good ways to share what Acts tells us that the early church did when “Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts” (Acts 2:46). If you wish you might consider eating with others these evenings as part of your homework for the class!!! Young people who have inquisitiveness in learning what this part of the Bible is all about are also most welcome.
All you need to do for the class is read Luke and Acts as a continuous story, bring your Bible, and an appetite to eat and learn. I will try to set these writings of the New Testament in a literary and historical context. Taken together, these four nights may offer some insights on arguably the most enjoyable books in our New Testament.
I look forward to seeing you these evenings ahead and encourage you to invite your neighbors, fellow acquaintances, and the just plain curious. I hope to make these evenings worth our time and learning, remember, keeps us all young!
Sincerely, your friend,
David N. Mosser
PS. The sessions will never go more than ninety minutes—completed by 8:30 sharp and the Rangers do not play any evening that week!
