Grace and peace to you in the name of Tongues of Fire and the Presence of God!
We celebrate the birth of God's movement to empower and create an active Church on Pentecost Sunday (May 24th). For the next six months - until Thanksgiving Weekend - we consider the work of the Church and the work of God's children through the long season of Ordinary time (from a Latin word for "ordering").
In this long season, we consider how we see God move and we respond with our whole lives. We consider the full mission of God's Church to all the world and how Community Covenant can and should participate in this mission.
Pentecost always arrives in late spring, as the seasons draw us toward summer and the joys of rest, recreation and restoration. May we use this same draw as an inspiration for our spiritual journeys. May we seek the rest, recreation and restoration of time with God daily. May we springboard that experience to carry God's hope and love to all our world!
