Pentecost: Feel the Winds of the Spirit

The coming of the Holy Spirit fills the faithful with hope for new possibilities. Fifty days after the news of Jesus’ resurrection, the community of disciples receives God’s Spirit, empowering us to preach the gospel and witness to the wonder of God to make all things new, to bring hope out of despair, life out of death, and love out of fear. First Presbyterian Church seeks always and in all ways to witness to the Spirit’s transforming power. On Pentecost, May 19th, we will gather to hear the scripture story of that first Pentecost, when the disciples, still fearful, were emboldened to proclaim the truth about God’s love and mercy, God’s power to use ordinary human beings to bring about peace and justice and love.
