SIGNS OF THE SPIRIT

Fr. Rich

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Perhaps the most popular image of the Holy Spirit in Scripture is that of the dove. While not a dove, last week a bird of some sort was spotted hopping around in our Church vestibule. And two weeks before that a Fountain 5.15parishioner observed two robins playing (or bathing) in the water fountain in our Prayer Garden. As your pastor I will take both instances as confirmation that the Holy Spirit is alive and active in our parish community.

I don’t really need birds to confirm the presence of the Holy Spirit. The love, kindness, generosity, and goodness of our parishioners — each of you — is all the evidence I need that God is at work in our corner of the world.

Pentecost is a feast that celebrates the Spirit and the Church. The two go hand in hand. The Holy Spirit animates, inspires, encourages and strengthens us to do the work of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is God’s Spirit deep within each of us and all around us that helps us to proclaim the Good News, care for the hurting, build up the Kingdom.

I pray that you continue to be open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit in your life as you endeavor to follow Jesus Christ and do God’s will.

Next Sunday we will celebrate who we are as a community of faith with our Parish Picnic. A lot of hard work has gone into the planning of this FREE event. Please plan to come. We’ll have a tent and tables set up. Food will be served. Activities for all ages are planned. Bring a lounge chair if you’d like and sit under one of our beautiful trees. Begin the summer months by enjoying company of fellow parishioners while making some new friends.

Happy Pentecost!
Fr. Rich
