"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Please Be Seated

The names of the apostles are integral to our story of faith, but in truth, we know very little about many of them. Bits of information from the gospels and Acts of the Apostles do allow a glimpse of their lives in the first Christian community. The rest we can only prayerfully imagine. We know that Matthew collected from his Jewish kin the hated Roman tax and that he associated with other tax collectors and “sinners.” What we can prayerfully imagine is Jesus sharing a meal with them, and then we might wonder if we would have joined them at the table.
