Gathered & Sent – A Communal Sermon
The Holy Spirit comes to a community in the Pentecost story. And so we hear Scriptural reflections from our community. Pastor Megan shares what our Spiritual Leadership Team noticed and wondered about together as we dwelt in this story during Saturday’s meeting (in our morning practice of lectio divina). We are a people who gather around our center, covenanting with one another and our God. We are a people both gathered in and sent out by God’s Spirit. Thanks be to the Holy Spirit of wind and flame! [sermon begins at minute 15:30, covenanting begins at minute 32:05]
