Eutychus of Troas
This week we’ll hear from the President of our Minnesota South District about Eutychus from Scripture. Eutychus was a young man from Troas so weary that he slept during one of the apostle Paul’s sermons and fell three stories out a window to his death. Luke tells Eutychus’ story in Acts 20:7-12, which includes the young man’s resurrection. Eutychus may be the hero of many who are too weary to be attentive, dynamic listeners to the Word of God.
