Metanoia Semester, April Thank you’s, and more
METANOIA SEMESTER: As this school year draws to a close and we consider our options for the future, we are realizing we need more committed live-in community members in order to move forward. In the past, GCW has offered internships called a “Metanoia semester” to folks interested in an immersion experience of living and working at the GCW, in order to learn more about what we are and why we do it. If this is something that interests you for the fall or spring of next year, contact Daniel Loya to learn more, at 863-207-3670 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

QUOTATION OF THE WEEK:
They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of bread and to the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.
