Once again we were lucky enough to get a day when the weather was reasonably good only after we had finished the game did it rain for about 20 minutes but by that time we all were under the pavilions enjoying the drinks.

Even though the 1st century Church looked and operated much differently than Churches today, there are plenty of descriptive lessons to be learned from how these initial Christian communities functioned.  For Christians in the 1st century, Church was no mere club, nor one option among many various groups to which one could belong; it was, for them, what came to define their very heritage and identity.
