Pentecost, Sunday June 5- the 50th day since Easter, the birthday of the church as well as the arrival of the Holy Spirit in dramatic fashion
Pentecost is a time of action. God sends the Holy Spirit to empower the Church to continue the work begun by Jesus, reaching down to transform human hearts amid life’s turmoil. Through the Spirit’s ministry, Christ continues to bring good news to the poor, proclaim release to the captives, heal the blind, free the oppressed, and proclaim God’s favor (Luke 4.18-19).
The enclosed video shows several of our ministries and the people that make them happen to continue Jesus ministry. God’s energizing power is evident here: vivifying, knitting together, upholding and transforming all life. Our diversity with multiple talents and backgrounds helps to make ministry happen. All of us have a role to play in different way – we all have the potential to be filled. Pentecost is a “Day of Radiant Gladness.”
