There were two important tasks for the Apostles in the early Church. The first was to build faith communities as they travelled from one city to another. We hear of some of those places in the Acts in this Sunday’s readings: Pisidia, Pamphylia, Pergia, Attalia and Antioch. The second was to offer encouragement and hope to these communities amidst the struggle of persecution. Paul and Barnabas were key figures in the building up of these communities and the encouragement and support they offered.
