Sunday, May 31 Worship material

Dear Church,

Grace and peace to you on this Pentecost Sunday!  Our theme today is: Welcoming the Holy Spirit to Quench Our Thirst.

Begin your Sunday worship with a good stretch, or an invigorating walk outside; and then sit nice and tall for a moment of quiet. You can invite God’s Spirit to come in with your breath and fill your whole body.

Then enjoy the beautiful poetry about God the Creator in Psalm 104.

Michael sent a CD of hymns played on piano to the whole church! Thank you, Michael. He wanted to make sure everyone has some music for worship. He also has recorded songs particularly for today on his Youtube Channel.

Ginette Desrosiers reads our Scriptures for today (I’ve fixed it so it is now public and viewable–apologies!): Acts 2:1-21 and the brief John 7:37-39.

Pastor Bill talks about what it means that the Spirit is sometimes associated with fire, and sometimes with water–and water seems appropriate this year. He had fun filming on location! Thanks to Silas for his video work.

Pentecost Forecast

Praying together is what invited the Spirit to descend upon the disciples in Acts. This week, church leadership will discuss when and how to meet together again. Please pray for us. But for now, we can all meet and pray together online. Below you’ll find directions to get on our 11:15 Zoom Fellowship and prayer meeting. You can join anytime, on computer, smart phone, or regular old landline phone (dial 929 205 6099 and when prompted, enter the meeting code: 884 3475 4609). We listen to one another’s joys and concerns and then join in a Pastoral Prayer and Lord’s Prayer at 11:45.

You can also email or text me (773-955-4034) prayer concerns, which I will post on this website.

Go forth refreshed and watered by Christ’s goodness, and may the Spirit of God go with you!
