Is It Just a Dream?

Imagine living in a community where everyone exists in harmony, where everyone looks out for each other, where everyone has enough - is that even possible?

According to the book of Acts, it IS possible, and just such a community was formed. From Acts 4:32-35:

"The whole congregation of believers was united as one—one heart, one mind! They didn’t even claim ownership of their own possessions. No one said, “That’s mine; you can’t have it.” They shared everything. The apostles gave powerful witness to the resurrection of the Master Jesus, and grace was on all of them.

"And so it turned out that not a person among them was needy. Those who owned fields or houses sold them and brought the price of the sale to the apostles and made an offering of it. The apostles then distributed it according to each person’s need."

A dream worth pursuing.
