In the second of this series on words that at first glance seem incompatible, we are looking at “Gathered, scattered Church” from Acts 8: 4-8. Church is not a building, nor a service on Sunday morning, but people that sometimes gather together to worship, pray, break bread, read the Scriptures, and sometimes are scattered to the places where they live, work or play. How can we intentionally be the church in our scattered-ness as well as in our gathering? Why has God placed us where we live or work? And what is His purpose in doing so?
