“communional” – what is it? (part 2)

So where do we find this “communional” ministry in the Bible?  I mean… I’ve had responses ranging from “this sounds like commune living” to “is this a hippy movement?” to “sounds like communism to me.”  just to be clear… the Bible actually speaks of all three current church movements (Attractional, Missional, and Communional) in one passage.  A passage of scripture that is, actually, foundational to what the church SHOULD be (imagine that):

“All the believers devoted themselves to the apostle’s teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.  A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders.  And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had.  They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need.  They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity – all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people.  And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.”      Acts 2:42-47
