Acts 2:1-21

The coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost is often referred to as the “birthday” of the church. The Holy Spirit – advocate, comforter, divine presence – has come! We see how the church has moved forward after Jesus’ death, yet remains grounded in his teachings even the teachings of prophets like Joel who declared, “In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy.” We continue to pray for the Holy Spirit to be poured out over us today and that we might feel its movement in our hearts and lives.

This week, be attentive to the movement of the Holy Spirit in your life. At the end of each day, jot down your Holy Spirit moments!

Holy Spirit,
who came as wind
and flames of fire,
fan into life the gifts and abilities
of people everywhere;
unite us in a creative love
that includes others,
celebrates differences,
and brings glory to God.
