Signs in our Midst
This week in worship, we will continue to celebrate the beginnings of the church at Pentecost and the coming of the Holy Spirit to God’s people. Just as at the first Pentecost, we’ll watch for signs in our midst that God is making it possible to bridge divides between us. We’ll pay attention for how God is making it possible to reach out to those we didn’t think we knew. Maybe we don’t speak every language under heaven, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, God’s love extends beyond our understandings. We’ll listen and look and feel for where the Holy Spirit is moving among us and leading us at this time. We’ll hear a final sermon from Pastor Laura, our lay representatives to Annual Conference will update us about the actions taken there and their experience in Puyallup last week, and we’ll collect a special Peace with Justice offering.
