In the first of five teaching podcasts on the book of Acts, Bishop David Reed links the narrative of Acts to the liturgical life of the church. “Just as we do now, the Church in Acts is gathered, and continues gathering,” says Reed. “The Good News is proclaimed and taught. And the people are sent out…in the Name of Christ…in the power of the Holy Spirit. The story of Acts begins with the band of disciples waiting for something to happen. It is essentially what we do when we gather for worship on Sundays: we are “waiting upon the Lord,” waiting expectantly and attentively to hear and see God on the move in Word and Sacrament…so that we might be fed, strengthened and sent out.
