Today is Pentecost Sunday. It is the day that the Holy Spirit was unleashed like a violent wind and it changed the course of history. But what does Pentecost mean for us today? How can the church reach new people in a climate where the “nones” and the “dones” are increasing as Christianity is judged by the loudest voices who quite often tend to espouse a Christianity that is devoid of Christ and is more judgmental than loving.?
As the Church enters a new age, where is our passion? Where is our hope? What Jesus sized dreams are we willing to dream and what Jesus sized actions are we willing to take to help people know the love and grace of God in Christ?
Our Scriptures are Acts 2:1-21; Psalm 104:24-35; 1 Corinthians 12:3-13; and John 7:37-39.
*Please note: Next Sunday, June 4, McFarland UMC will worship at 10:00 A.M. to allow Pastor Wayne time to travel to Lake Junaluska for Annual Conference without rushing. We will return to the normal schedule of 11:00 A.M. Sunday worship on June 11.
