Sermon text: Acts 1:15-26
Christ ascended and the disciples waited. God prepared them before sending them out. He had delivered Israel out of Egypt, to bring them into Canaan. But they were not ready, so spent 40 years in the wilderness, fed by manna. We need times of preparation in our lives, and this table represents that. We rest here, renew strength. We reflect on what has happened. The family table is where discussion of past and future happen. We get equipped and re-oriented for future service.
