Scripture: Acts 2:1-21
Key verse: (4) All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.
Reflection: It feels like Pentecost at the church this week with all the VBS children. Several hundred children, youth assistants and their leaders. They are dancing, laughing and the Holy Spirit is moving. The Holy Spirit is animating this church with joy so that all are welcomed in love. The Holy Spirit is igniting faith so that all may blaze with commitment. The Holy Spirit is inspiring our children (and adults) to serve, building a shed for Habitat.
The spirit of God calls to us too. Summoning us to become more than we think we can be. Take a deep breath and let the spirit move you.
Prayer: Send forth your spirit, O God, and renew us this day. Dwell among us, even though your presence will startle and unsettle us. Grant us peace, we pray, this day and always. Amen.
