Spiritual and/or Religious

Early Christians were definitely "spiritual" but not yet identified with "religion" or is it that they were definitely religious but not yet spiritual?
Understanding these distinctions helps us understand our own relationship to contemporary Christianity. At the April 26 10am worship service Rev. Lise Sparrow will explore two epistle readings, Acts 4:5-12, 1 John 3:16-24 which highlight the challenges the disciples faced putting words to their experience of the Risen Christ. Connie Green will lead the choir in two anthems:"My Heart is Ready", an African Spiritual, and "The Psalm of Life" based on a poem of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The Sunday School will kick off its "21 Acts of Kindness" campaign which will end on Pentecost. Nursery Care is also provided and the Brattleboro Interfaith Teens will meet at noon to plan their upcoming service trip to the Cheyenne River Sioux.
