Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
From the readings above from Luke and Acts, we know that both Jesus and the Apostle Paul made it their custom to attend the synagogue on the Sabbath day. Many of you who read this newsletter also make it your custom to worship each Sunday at the local synagogue church. Some of you have shared your experiences when visiting other churches.
