Pentecostal sharing

Our very challenging sermon yesterday from our minister Robert Steiner quoted Acts 4:34-35 “There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold and laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.”

[[https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/03/opinion/sunday/what-monkeys-can-teach-us-about-fairness.html?emc=eta1|Nicholas Kristof]] reminded us in the New York Times yesterday that it was not poverty per se but inequality that is the real problem. I came home wondering how in today’s world we Christians could reduce inequality. Is tithing enough? Do we need to go beyond that? And, if so, how? It was a challenging sermon.
