From the desk of the Bishop ...
And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting (Acts 2:2).
 
What does it mean to be a Spirit-led Church?
 
The Opening Worship for our Synod Assembly will use the texts for Pentecost Sunday. We are reminded we are pentecostal people. We either have the Spirit, are led by the Spirit or we are nothing. Says the Psalmist:  when you take away your breath, O God, we die and return to dust. But when you send forth your spirit, you renew the whole earth.  Without the liveliness of the Holy Spirit we are left to ourselves.
