SUN DAY

Justin Martyr (early 2C) -- early community of God's actions when they came together:

On day called "Sun Day" believers gathered in one place [day of Helios -- Greek Sun god]; writings of apostles or prophets read; then when reader has ceased, the President instructs to imitation of these good things; pray; bread and wine and water brought; President in like manner gives prayers and thanksgiving; people say amen and distribution to each; to those absent a portion is sent by deacons; give according to what they see fit; President gives to those in need -- widows, orphans, sick, in bonds, strangers, etc.; but Sun Day is when we hold common assembly because it is the day when God changed darkness to create world; Yeshua rose from the dead. Yeshua was crucified before the day of Saturn and appeared to disciples on day of the Sun.
