=========================
使徒行传第4章
4:1 使徒对百姓说话的时候,祭司们和守殿官并撒都该人忽然来了。
4:2 因他们教训百姓,本着耶稣,传说死人复活,就很烦恼,
4:3 于是下手拿住他们。因为天已经晚了,就把他们押到第二天。
4:4 但听道之人有许多信的,男丁数目约到五千。
4:5 第二天,官府、长老和文士,在耶路撒冷聚会,
4:6 又有大祭司亚那该亚法约翰亚力山大,并大祭司的亲族都在那里。
4:7 叫使徒站在当中,就问他们说:“你们用什么能力、奉谁的名作这事呢?”
4:8 那时,彼得被圣灵充满,对他们说:
4:9 “治民的官府和长老啊,倘若今日因为在残疾人身上所行的善事,查问我们他是怎么得了痊愈,
4:10 你们众人和以色列百姓都当知道,站在你们面前的这人得痊愈,是因你们所钉十字架、神叫他从死里复活的拿撒勒人耶稣基督的名。
4:11 他是你们‘匠人所弃的石头,已经成了房角的头块石头。’
4:12 除他以外,别无拯救,因为在天下人间,没有赐下别的名,我们可以靠着得救。”
4:13 他们见彼得约翰的胆量,又看出他们原是没有学问的小民,就希奇,认明他们是跟过耶稣的。
4:14 又看见那治好了的人和他们一同站着,就无话可驳。
4:15 于是吩咐他们从公会出去,就彼此商议说:
4:16 “我们当怎样办这两个人呢?因为他们诚然行了一件明显的神迹,凡住耶路撒冷的人都知道,我们也不能说没有。
4:17 惟恐这事越发传扬在民间,我们必须恐吓他们,叫他们不再奉这名对人讲论。”
4:18 于是叫了他们来,禁止他们,总不可奉耶稣的名讲论教训人。
4:19 彼得约翰说:“听从你们,不听从神,这在神面前合理不合理,你们自己酌量吧!
4:20 我们所看见、所听见的,不能不说。”
4:21 官长为百姓的缘故,想不出法子刑罚他们,又恐吓一番,把他们释放了。这是因众人为所行的奇事,都归荣耀与神。
4:22 原来借着神迹医好的那人有四十多岁了。
4:23 二人既被释放,就到会友那里去,把祭司长和长老所说的话都告诉他们。
4:24 他们听见了,就同心合意地高声向神说:“主啊!你是造天、地、海和其中万物的,
4:25 你曾借着圣灵,托你仆人、我们祖宗大卫的口说:‘外邦为什么争闹?万民为什么谋算虚妄的事?
4:26 世上的君王一齐起来,臣宰也聚集,要敌挡主,并主的受膏者(或作“基督”)。’
4:27 希律本丢彼拉多、外邦人和以色列民果然在这城里聚集,要攻打你所膏的圣仆耶稣(“仆”或作“子”),
4:28 成就你手和你意旨所预定必有的事。
4:29 他们恐吓我们,现在求主鉴察;
4:30 一面叫你仆人大放胆量,讲你的道;一面伸出你的手来医治疾病,并且使神迹奇事因着你圣仆耶稣的名行出来(“仆”或作“子”)。”
4:31 祷告完了,聚会的地方震动,他们就都被圣灵充满,放胆讲论神的道。
4:32 那许多信的人都是一心一意的,没有一人说他的东西有一样是自己的,都是大家公用。
4:33 使徒大有能力,见证主耶稣复活,众人也都蒙大恩。
4:34 内中也没有一个缺乏的,因为人人将田产房屋都卖了,把所卖的价银拿来,放在使徒脚前,
4:35 照各人所需用的,分给各人。
4:36 有一个利未人,生在居比路,名叫约瑟,使徒称他为巴拿巴(“巴拿巴”翻出来就是“劝慰子”)。
4:37
他有田地也卖了,把价银拿来,放在使徒脚前。
 
 
Agenda for Potluck Dinner for Randall Chan
 
Dear, Diana, Lixin, and Lintao,
4/18 (this coming Saturday) is near. I am sending this memo to remind you of the dinner party for Randall in this Saturday. Unfortunately Connie will be going back to UK this Thursday (4/16) and won't be able to join us. Just let me know if there is any difficulty to cause your fellowship not being able to accomplish. See you in Saturday evening. Besides, just let you know two other fellowships, Living Water and Vineyard, may also have brothers and sisters join us. They show their interests much later after all tasks were already assigned. But, I still welcome their attendance and ask those who come to bring dishes/deserts. I just wish you can prepare materials for more people coming.
 
Love in our Lord,
Yah-Kong

Hi, Diana, Lixin, and Lintao,
I have reserved the chapel for the welcome party for Randall and Connie on 4/18/09, Saturday, @5:00 - 10:00 PM. I have three fellowships (Green Olive, Berean, and Lexington Central) participating in the activity. I need your help to coordinate your fellowship on the food preparation. It's up to you to do whatever way convenient to your bible study group to bring food and desserts/fruits.
In order to be efficient and effective, I distribue assignment of tasks among us as follows:
1) Children care - all fellowships (depending how many children). Also, children can stay with us as long as they are big enough.
2) Paper plates/cups/napkins - Lexington Central
3) Singspiration and chopsticks/forks/spoons - Berean needs to give me the list of songs a week earlier (4/11) so that the pianoist can practice at home.
4) Name tags (to get people acquainted with each other) - Green Olive
5) Pianoist invitation, food coordination, chairs/tables setting, and cleanup afterwards - Yah-Kong Yang (but I need brothers' help from each of your fellowships)
 
The time schedule is the following:
1) 5:00 - 5:45 PM : tables and chairs setting, people checkin.
2) 5:45 - 7:30 PM : Dinner time
3) 7:30 - 8:00 PM : Singspiration
4) 8:00 - 8:05 PM : Introduction about Randall/Connie
5) 8:05 - 9:25 PM : Randall/Connie sharing and Q&A interactively
6) 9:25 - 9:45 PM : Cleanup and restoring tables/chairs
 
The only request is to have each family to make enough food (not necessarily for everyone but can feed at least half of attendances). I will remind people to control the food taking so that people lining up at the rear can also have chance to get some popular food.
 
Let me know if you have any questions.
 
Love in our Lord,
Yah-Kong
