Newsletter & Order of Service for the Day of Pentecost

The rector writes: "In the Pentecost story from Acts, the Holy Spirit opens up dreams and visions — new possibilities for being and knowing, acting and serving — to the old and the young, to women and men, to people of every background, faith and status. New truths — both profoundly wonderful and deeply disturbing — are revealed. The Spirit shakes things up, quickening our desire for God's dream of love and communion, and also showing us how we fall short of that dream, and the ways that we must travel, the amends we must make, and the community we need to respond fully to the divine vision of a renewed and thriving creation."
Join us Sunday at 11 a.m. online, via Zoom, as we celebrate the birthday of Christ's church, the Holy Spirit come among us to wake us up and show us what is ours to do in God's world.
