Today’s sermon brings to our attention to the message from Acts 9:36-43. Even though Jesus has died, his resurrection has empowered those are now the leaders of the church. The apostles have stepped up and the movement is continuing. The faith did not died with Jesus. The Jewish movement has moved into the broad multi-cultural realm of the Roman Empire. The example in the Reading names Tabitha, also known as Dorcas, as a disciple. This duel name is meant to show how the Christen community is expanding. She was a model of good works and great charity. We can also be like Peter, answer a call for assistance even when the situation seems hopeless. We should do this even if we do not know what we can do able it.
