Pentecost

May 23, 2021

This Pentecost Sunday, as the church celebrates its birthday, Pastor Rob reflects on two realities
 
1) The church – the community of faith – remains a vehicle of God’s grace, word and truth in this world (the picture is from the national cathedral’s display of doves)
 
2) The majority of people do not care about what happens at church
 
How do we not succumb to the temptation to live as us vs them? The Holy Spirit transformed the early Christian church (and is still transforming us today) into a community that was (is) “us for them”, as they shared (we share) in word and in deed the audacious hope: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
