Many of these names and places now seem to go by in a whirlwind. Don't let the pace of the text fool you, plenty is happening. We take a short pause to see the brethren gathering to break bread, which should be our custom as well. Too often we propose this project or that lecture or this meeting when most often the important thing is to share this moment in fellowship, in love and appreciation for the brethren. And if an Apostle like Paul happens to be in town and drop by, so much the better (just keep the windows shut).
