Join the women clergy of First Church of San Diego as they continue their exploration of “Becoming Better Humans” in the next several episodes of Perspectives FUMCSD Pastors Podcast.

In this episode of Perspectives FUMCSD Pastors Podcast, Rev. Trudy and Rev. Hannah are taking another look at the early church, as outlined by Acts of the Apostles, diving into the concept of radical generosity and living in true community.

When reviewing from today’s lens, the Acts church may conjure up images of Marxism and Communism. How achievable would that type of living be today? Did it actually happen the way it’s translated in so many Bible versions? What was the true mission of the early Christian church?

Rev. Trudy and Rev. Hannah discuss all this and more, giving everyone a lot to ponder when it comes to giving, prophetic teaching, and the mission of today’s Christian church. It’s all part of a multi-episode theme: Becoming Better Humans.
