Gathering Together in Christ
Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.”

Focus for this Session
• The nature of faith as both personal (we each have to say “I believe”) and communal (we share the faith of the Church)
• The importance of faith sharing (which respects both the personal and communal aspects of faith)
• We gather, united in our quest for an encounter with Christ
— What are our hopes and expectations?
— Have we come looking for what we want, or are we ready to receive what we need? —Are we open to what this encounter with Christ will bring, to where it may lead us?
