In the drama of Acts, the Holy Spirit is the main character and the plot is The Common. What IS "The Common"? In short, it's the spectacular joining of God's people which enables collective boldness, criminal discipleship, and shared life. Pastor Megan reflects on insights gleaned through engagement with Willie James Jennings' magnificent commentary on the book of Acts as a "revolution of the intimate" (sermon begins at 22:20).
