Speaking of church activities, I wonder why Acts and none of the New Testament epistles included copies of the early church's calendar? Of course, I pose the question with tongue firmly in cheek—these days, we seem pretty events-driven (or at least events-laden). While I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, it's very culturally bound. We have great reasons for doing what we do and even for how and when we do them; it's just healthy to remind ourselves that many of them are simply choices of how to be faithful within our culture, rather than "musts." I'm probably oversensitive to it because of my work, but I think the events mindset has a way of creeping in and threatening takeover.
Just saw jadeejf here at Irwin's. Glad I stopped in!
