And in the Power of the Holy Spirit... Proclaim Jubilee!
Pentecost is about the moment the church was born. It is about what the church of Jesus Christ is supposed to be. It is about the Holy Spirit bringing people together as one in spite of their differences: different cultures, different languages, different traditions, different beliefs, different interpretations, different theologies. Pentecost is about being unified in words, and in a salvation that is for all people. And so we come to the end of the series, and the end of the season of Easter with the celebration of the church’s beginning, we go forth rejoicing with great hope, proclaiming salvation for all people!
