Our statement to live by for week commencing 8th January 2013 is…..
I know I belong in a community that includes my school.
Many people joined the community of the friends of Jesus. They lived every day as they were taught. They lived like members of one big family. They ate together, sharing bread and wine as Jesus had done at the last supper. They prayed together often.
Everyone was amazed at the life they lived. The apostles did wonderful things among the people.
The community of friends shared everything with one another. They sold everything they owned and shared out the money so that each person had what they needed.
Thank you Heavenly Father,
for Christian communities everywhere.
Help us always to love one another just as Jesus taught.
Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
