Fellowship

“They were devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching
and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
(Acts 2:42, NET 2nd ed.)

I (Bruce) have been thinking about the Biblical Greek term κοινωνία (koinonia). It is translated as “fellowship,” “participating,” “partnership,” and “sharing” in various translations.

  • Other examples are:
  • “Is not the cup of blessing that we bless a sharing (participation) in the blood of Christ? …” (1 Corinthians 10:16, NET 2nd ed.)
  • “… Because of your participation (partnership) in the gospel from the first day until now.” (Philippians 1:5, NET 2nd ed.)

As believers we share, have fellowship, and participate together in daily life. For those with ‘sticks and bricks’ homes who regularly attend the same church each week, they have koinonia with their church friends, families, neighbors, etc.

As SOWERs who travel extensively and have no permanent residence, with whom do we have koinonia? We develop our network with other SOWERs. We do this through working on projects together, having after-work get-togethers/dinners, attending local churches and even going on group outings.

Because of the extensive amount of time spent in partnership working, fellowshipping, and even worshipping together on Sunday mornings, those relationships are even richer. For those of us who do not have a permanent location with a sticks and bricks home, we are exceedingly blessed by our fellow SOWERs. 🤠🤗

      She’s repairing a torn comforter. Apparently these things cost around $300 each, and she’s trying to save the Camp a little money.
