Lenten devotional: When you have more

Artwork by Jen Bloomer

Acts 4: 32-35

32 The group of believers were united in their hearts and spirit. All those in the group acted as though their private property belonged to everyone in the group. In fact, they shared everything. 33 With great power the apostles were telling people that the Lord Jesus was truly raised from the dead. And God blessed all the believers very much. 34 There were no needy people among them. From time to time those who owned fields or houses sold them, brought the money, 35 and gave it to the apostles. Then the money was given to anyone who needed it.

Let us pray:

Oh God of Creation
and Bounty and all that is Good, 
Give us a vision 
To build community
To share what we have 
To emulate 
The vision of the first Church.

Grace Congregational Church members and friends have contributed to this year’s Lenten devotionals. This year’s Lenten theme is “Good enough: Embracing the imperfections of life and faith.” Today’s devotional was contributed by Ellen Green.
