What's the big deal about Pentecost?

The first reading is from the Book of Acts. This lesson tells the story of the Holy Spirit filling the apostles and empowering them to share the message of the gospel with people of different languages. Clearly, this was a most dramatic moment in the life of the early church, an experience described in terms of wind and fire. From this time forward the mighty works of God done in Jesus' name will be told to all the people of the earth, crossing barriers of language and culture.

Parishioner Insight

by Shirley Stasiowski.

In the name of God, I, _____, take you, _____, to be my wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until parted by death. This is my solemn vow.

I say those words fifty years ago not really thinking of what that means

why because I haven’t a clue.

You start your life together taking that ride together not knowing what will be but you hang on and take that journey together.

You go through life making memories of the best of times and also living through the worst of times.

For myself, I look to God and say thank you for today and continue the ride… S.S. Robert … I Love You…“Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)"

God, our hearts are broken with pain at the senseless deaths caused by gun violence. Families mourn, children live in fear, and some in our nation respond by arming themselves with more guns with greater capacity to end life. Our disconnection and alienation has caused some to turn to guns for protection and safety. We ask that you touch our hearts with your love, heal our brokenness, and turn us away from violence toward peace. Help us to transform our own hearts and to seek peaceful ways of resolving our differences. Let our hands reach out and connect with those who feel alone, those who live in fear, and those suffering from mental illness. Let our voices be raised asking our legislators to enact gun laws to protect all in our society, especially those most vulnerable. Let our pens write messages demanding change while also scripting words of hope and transformation. We ask this in the name of the God who desires that we live together in peace.  Amen
