Deacons in Acts

In the early chapters of Acts, at the beginning of the New Covenant Church there was a joyous time where everyone shared all that they had will anyone else who was in need. Just a few months later we have seen jealousy, lying, and deceit with Ananias and Sapphire. We have seen persecution escalating from the Jewish leadership and now we see factions among the people. It doesn’t take long for our sin to get in the way of God’s goodness. Was the solution to the problem with the widows the creation of a new office or was this a onetime occurrence? Are we given a pattern to follow or can culture dictate how the structure of a church is formulated.

Great episode, guys. Glad you’re on RF now!

I put together http://reformeddeacon.com/ last year to encourage churches to have healthy, functioning diaconates. I hope people find it helpful!
