(June 8, 2014 – Pentecost Sunday) The story of Pentecost– the church’s “birthday” as the disciples received the Holy Spirit– paints a picture of a diverse group all together in one place. In this gathering, differences are not erased or harmonized, but celebrated! Are we living as those who expect, celebrate, and minister with the diversity of our communities? (1 Corinthians 12:3b-13; Acts 2:1-21)
I was also inspired by this post by my colleague and facebook friend, Rev. Emily Heath.
