Together in Faith: "I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word.” John 17.22
Jesus encourages his followers to be constantly aware of their impact on others, especially those who are being touched by Christian generosity, compassion and self-giving.
Pentecost is coming—June 9th: Please join YOUR voice to our multilingual "group reading" of Acts 2:1-21! We need people of all ages with a reading knowledge of any language or dialect. The passage we will read is short (Acts 2, verses 5-11 only); your rendition need not be "perfect"; if you're shy, don't worry -- you won't be "in the spotlight"; and we'll even print out a translation for you. In past years, the Pentecost message has been heard in Arabic, English, French, German, Gullah, Igbo, Kikuyu, Latin, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese... We may need more than one speaker of each language -- the more, the better! Please contact Jan Northcutt: firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-621- 0085. Let's make a "joyful noise" to the Lord!
