Dear friends and members of St. Paul’s,
This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost, a day which recognizes the coming of the Holy Spirit. Why is the Holy Spirit so central in our Christian life? The Holy Spirit shows us Jesus and his words. The Holy Spirit assures (seals) us in the faith, and he is the power behind God’s mission. We regularly bump up into our limitations collectively as a congregation and individually as a believers. How good to know that God has provided us the ultimate of helpers, the Holy Spirit.
Blessings in Christ,
