The Good News in this Day of Pentecost is the promise of the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus and that the breath of the Holy Spirit given to each and everyone of us. Even in times of great upheaval and disturbance, the Church, the Body of Christ, is empowered and emboldened by the Holy Spirit with the love and grace of Jesus. And we too, shall dream dreams because nothing is impossible with God. That is why we are both an Easter and a Pentecost people!
For this interactive worship, you will need snacks or your favorite foods/meal, a candle for lighting (or a flashlight or cell phone), and a worry stone (any rock will work). You are welcome to draw or color a heart every time you hear the word heart or love in this worship experience. You will also need a glass filled to the brim with water and a bowl or plate to put it in.
"Heart of the Matter" is a seven-week series concluding with the Festival Day of Pentecost. Easter is not just a day. It is a whole season of time when we remember and celebrate that the Spirit of Jesus lives on in each of us. So over the next few weeks, we are worshiping and praising God as the early disciples (later apostles) did, in their homes with glad and generous hearts, breaking bread, and having the goodwill of all people. It is in this way, that we are connected. We are connected through the love and grace of Jesus. Worship script by Marcia McFee and Worship Design Studio.
