Worship With Us
Join us for worship this Sunday at 9:55am (or watch it later) on YouTube. We will send the exact link in the next couple of days. Our scriptures are the Pentecost story – Acts 2:1-18a and John 14:15-17, 25-27. Get ready for the Holy’s descending, not ending, mending, blowing, sowing, growing, rain falling, enthralling, calling, burning, returning, yearning. 

Jesus promised this gift of the Holy Spirit. He had been telling the disciples to wait just a bit longer… Now it is 50 days after Easter and all the people are gathered together to celebrate and give thanks for the things that have been bursting forth from the earth… then the Spirit enters in and brings us all together and then sends out again… to be love in the world.

Wear red if you can – the color of fire, tongues of fire, passion of the Holy Spirit.

You can find worship services of the last few months on our YouTube Channel (Kevin Cameron) or on our Facebook page -- Facebook.com/ParkwayUnitedChurchOfChrist under videos.

Opportunities for the Week – arriving via email on Fridays for the following week. Consult the calendar on our website.

The claim of Pentecost, from Acts 2 and Ephesians 4 and Romans 8 and all those other great Spirit-texts in the New Testament, especially John 13—16, is precisely that the rule which the ascended Lord Jesus exercises on earth is exercised through his Spirit-filled people. No doubt we do need ‘comforting’ in the modern sense of that word, cheering up when we’re sad. But we need, far more do we need, ‘comforting’ in the older sense of ‘strengthening’, strengthening-by-coming-alongside. Just as, in human ‘comfort’, a strange thing happens, that the sheer presence, even the silent presence, alongside us of a friend gives us fresh courage and hope, how much more will the presence alongside us and within us of the Spirit of Jesus himself give us courage and hope not simply to cheer up in ourselves but to be strong to witness to God where human rulers mess it up and ignorant armies clash by night. ~NT Wright
