Acts 6:10-11
None of them could stand against the wisdom and the Spirit with which Stephen spoke
. So they persuaded some men to lie about Stephen, saying, "We heard him blaspheme Moses, and even God."

One of the things that I've seen far too often is people who spread lies and rumors about others. I pretty much have no grace for people who tear others down and who spread rumors about others (even if they are true). At our All About BridgeWay Lunch (our welcome class for new people at BridgeWay) I make a pretty big deal that we are not a church that will put up with gossip or speaking negatively about others (regardless of the validity of the rumor). I pray that God helps us all to see the need for a spirit of unity and the power of his Spirit at work in and through our church.
