LatestOne of the marks of the early church was a rhythm they developed. We see it in Acts 5:42: “And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease teaching and preaching that the Christ is Jesus.” That’s the mark of the early church that we want to focus on: their commitment to Christ and to one another; and the weekly rhythm of how they met together to express that commitment in large groups and in small groups “house to house.”

The truth has nothing to fear—so what are your questions?
On this day, we remember the day of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the first day of Passion Week, so named because it was the week that ended with Christ’s suffering and death on the cross.
