Throughout Acts 3-5 we read of the remarkable growth of the Christian church, so clearly empowered by the Spirit of God that many responded with awe. See Acts 4:32-35. But at the beginning of Acts 6 we hear the first discordant threat to the unity of the church: the hellenistic widows are being neglected in the daily distribution of food. The way that the church responds to this problem provides us with some important principles of church leadership and organisation, along with a great example of gospel driven social justice.
