I hope you can remember back to the first weeks of the celebration of the Easter season. They were glorious celebrations of the resurrection! There was active participation in our word and sacrament worship. Singing children. Singing adults. Good weather to hunt eggs. Good attendance. And of course, the two week story of the chocolate bunnies!
There has been a very good spirit exhibiting itself at Holy Spirit. Now we are approaching the Day of Pentecost, the day when we recall how people of diverse backgrounds and nationalities came together and could, in their own voices, also exhibit a good spirit of proclamation as they went out to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
This is a good example for us to remember as we progress through these next months of the year. As the early church found their voice and worked together, so must we. We have some projects to take on, some planning to do. All are things which will move forward the ministry of Holy Spirit.
That’s the direction we’re headed. Forward. I look to your continuing participation in worship and the mission of the congregation, so that Christ may be shared.
