from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

A Glimpse of the Early Church

From the article, Live Longer, Healthier, and Better by Rodney Stark.

“Christianity offered a unifying subculture, bridging these divisions and providing a strong sense of common identity. To cities filled with the homeless and impoverished, Christianity offered charity and hope. To cities filled with newcomers and strangers, Christianity offered an immediate fellowship. To cities filled with orphans and widows, Christianity provided a new and expanded sense of family. In short, Christianity offered a longer, more secure, and happier life.”
