Breaking of Bread - Basic Practices #2

Another of the basic practices of the early church as described by Luke as the breaking of bread or sharing in common meals, which included observance\celebration of the Lord's Supper. One of the counter cultural qualities of the early church's common meals was how people of different social status were treated and viewed as equals as they opened their homes to one another. Hospitality, even to the stranger, was embedded in the practice of the early church as they recognized they had been invited by God into His Kingdom and family when they were estranged from Him. We are still called by God to practice hospitality in our context.
