Meditation:  “I will pour out my spirit on all flesh.”  (Joel 2:28)

“All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit.”  (Acts 2:4)

On that Pentecost day so long ago, the power of the one spirit of God gave power to the many diverse peoples gathered in Jerusalem, and the Christian church was given birth.  Again in these days, as we gather in this time of Pentecost may we gather in the full diversity of God’s people and be empowered anew by the one spirit of God to be God’s many people of one love.

Grace and peace,

Pastor Sherry
