Growing – and listening to God’s voice A report of Duncan’s sermon this morning

This morning’s sermon from Duncan was on the story of Philip’s encounter with the Ethiopian (Acts 8:26:40.)  Duncan reminded us that last week we’d been reflecting on the death of Stephen, the first Christian martyr – following his death, Jesus prophecy in Acts 1:8 that his followers would ‘be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth’ began to be fulfilled. The early church grows as a consequence
