Looking for Love in All The Wrong Places

(Sorry Willie)

“All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceedsc to all, as any had need. Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at homed and ate their food with glad and generouse hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.” — Acts 2

Recently I scanned through some news sources. Yes, I do see political news, but I adamantly shun those media whose method is to raise emotions in order to keep viewers glued to the site/channel in order to sell more advertising. (Hi, Fox, MSNBC, Facebook.)

I had an overwhelming sense of anxiety, fear, loss of belonging among people leaving a hole in the heart that politicians were scrambling to fill.

But, I thought, where are the churches? Compounding the problem?

And I recalled Acts 2. The church was generous and caring and had the goodwill of all the people.

Does that sound like a description of today? What can we do about it?
