The Body of Christ. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H1r1BMmGbc. Assignment. Read Acts 2: 42-47. What do these verses say about the early church? Is this realistic today? Why or why not?. The Body of Christ. Church. Ecclesia: Greek A duly summoned assembly Church. Church.
A duly summoned assembly
Through Bishops, priests, deacons, religious and lay people, the Church authentically teaches us the faith handed down by the Apostles.
It guides us with the truth in our moral decision-making.
Every person is needed
No one is less important than anyone else
(is this true today?)
Every person brings some gift that is needed by the community
It is in the diversity of these gifts that the Church finds its strength
