Together in Faith: “The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, will… remind you of all that I told you.” John 14
Jesus promises his continuous reminding presence through the Holy Spirit… which is a good thing since it can be easy to forget what Jesus said and how it applies to our lives. The disciples were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit. Acts 13:52
Paul and Barnabas have just been harassed by some people in Antioch and chased out of town, yet they’re happy as can be. Obviously they didn’t have a problem with rejection! Which makes them pretty good role models for a steward, actually for anyone striving to live and proclaim the Good News.
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: email@example.com or 480-621- 0085. Let's make a "joyful noise" to the Lord!
