Pentecost & Confirmation Sunday

Pentecost & Confirmation Sunday

Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Spirit on the followers of Jesus, seven weeks after Easter. On this special, celebratory day in the life of the church, we celebrate the confirmation of four of our youth: Nora Dicky, Jacob Hornbaker, Ryan Shaffer, Nate Shreiner

From Bruce Epperly’s, “Mystical and Missional: A Spirit-Inspired Pentecost:”

“I’d like to suggest that Pentecost reminds us—invites us—as progressive and moderate Christians to embrace a holistic spirit-centered faith that leads to life-transforming actions.

Pentecost is about the intersection of mysticism and mission. In the Acts 2 narrative, the disciples—I suspect both women and men—experienced heat, light, and wind, and were driven out into the street to share the good news of the Risen and Saving Christ. Their missional venture led to a mass mystical experience. The disciples spoke in “other tongues” and Passover visitors heard the good news of healing and salvation each in their own tongue. Mysticism was involved in both giving and receiving on that Pentecost day.

Ecstatic from their encounter with the Spirit, Peter and his followers proclaim a democracy of revelation that includes old and young, male and female, and slave and free. God’s Spirit transcends human-made boundaries. Poured out on all flesh, God can be experienced in dreams, visions, prophetic words, and preaching. In fact, there is no absolute vehicle for divine communication. God comes to all and through all modalities. Further, a democracy of revelation eventually leads to an ethic of equality, stretching the early church beyond its Jewish roots. If you can experience God’s Spirit, then you deserve to be treated as a child of God with full-fledged status as a sister or brother in the faith.”

Youth Group & YoYos End of Year Picnic

Summer is fast approaching, and the end of the regularly scheduled church events are coming to a close.

The last youth/yoyo gathering is the end of year picnic to be held at Red Run Park on Sunday May 19th from 4-6pm. This is a little earlier than my usual RSVPs, but I want to give the meal providers and game planners plenty of notice. Rather than do the transporting, I am just asking you to drop your youth or yoyo off at the park, and pick them up there as well. Please RSVP no later than Monday May 13th.
