Pentecost has Truly Come

“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”
The day of Pentecost is the day the church was born; Christ’s body on earth. Christ said that after He left He would send the comforter to empower us to be in Christ for the world. The Spirit draws us into communion and fellowship with Christ in His worship to the Father. Through the Spirit we have been given access to Christ and the ability to live Godly in Christ Jesus. This leads to the church, Christ’s body, redeemed by His blood, reclaiming this world, in the power of the Spirit, for the Glory of the Father. The day of Pentecost in acted the renewed destiny of all of creation and invites all to join in the process. Come, Holy Spirit!

Mission and Meal pt2: Remembrance

“Remembrance is an act of love. God remembers us and His remembrance, His love of the foundation of the world. In Christ, we remember. We become again beings open to love, and we remember. the church in its separation from ‘this world,’ on its journey to heaven, remembers the world, remembers all men, remembers the whole creation, takes it in love to God. The Eucharist is the sacrament of cosmic remembrance: it is indeed a restoration of love as the very life of the world.” Alexander Schmemann
Remembrance leads to worship and worship leads to communion and communion leads to incarnation. Any thoughts?
