What does this mean to me?

“On the Day of the Sun, all who live in cities or in the country gather together in one place and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits, then when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs and exhorts to the imitation of these good things. Then we all rise together and pray.” — Justin Martyr, describing his local church gathering about the year 115 A.D.
