Proverbs 16.24 (NRSV)
Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
As many know I love Pentecost Sunday. It is the Sunday that we talk about the Holy Spirit. It is the Sunday that we witness its movement and what began with a few disciples following Jesus turned into a church that follows Jesus. Pentecost's color is red signifying the boldness of our witness and our set apartness that invites us to live our faith out loud.
This Sunday in worship, we will witness to how the Holy Spirit continues to move. Through the lives of the PasPorte Youth, they will testify through the language of my favorite desserts how we are united together in our experiences. How the goodness of God, the sacredness of our lives, and the sometimes stickiness of an adventure of faith collide together.
I hope you will make sure to join us as we come together to worship God as we are led by faithful followers of Christ who are moved by the Spirit to utter words of truth. May we be amazed and astonished by what the Holy Spirit continues to do. May we be strengthened by the ever unfolding, expansive nature of the love of God shown to us in Jesus and empowered in us by the Holy Spirit.
So remember to wear your RED and together we will worship God on this special Pentecost Sunday.
Grace and peace,
