How do we keep on keeping on when we're not sure about what direction to go? In the book of Acts, Jesus is no longer just down the road or around the corner, able to explain to his uncertain disciples what to do next. The disciples faced the reality of figuring out a way to witness in a complex world of many religions and cultures. They have something to tell us about community formation. In our new age, is community still important? How do we form it, find leaders, value leadership? How do we sustain communities, care for God’s people and bring along new generations? How do we interpret our Scripture in a modern context?
