Anything Harry and Megan do or say; the latest tweet from the POTUS; scandals in politics: we know such news goes “viral”. We must be mindful of the current pandemic and its associated pain and grief when using the title “Viral” for our new sermon series, but we know that good news also travels fast and reaches afar. For example, recently a young autistic boy went missing in thick Victorian bushland for 46 hours in freezing conditions. When he was miraculously found the good news went viral and all Victorians celebrated at once. In the 1st Century AD, Acts chapter 11 tells of how the Good News of Jesus went viral after Jewish Christians fled north from Jerusalem to the great multicultural city of Antioch in ancient Syria. People from many nations heard and responded to the Gospel with faith, and the rest, as they say, is history! We’ll follow the story through to Acts chapter 18 and explore how the Good News of Jesus might reach all people today.
