Marshmallows Anyone?

Come Holy Spirit Come
Come as the Fire and Burn

Come as the Wind and Cleanse
Come as the Light and Reveal
Convict, Convert, Consecrate
Until We are Wholly Yours

We've been attempting to find a date for today's congregational Town Hall at Bridge St. for some time, the third in a series intended to inform our flock about the work of our Strategic Planning Group. We have lurched along in some respects, in part because the two dreaded M's, Money and Mortar, seem to bump Mission and Ministry because of the "tyranny of the urgent."

We settled on this day, Pentecost, the birthday of the church, because it fits in our calendar of events and it makes sense that we ask whether the wind and the fire of the Holy Spirit are still at work in our midst. I can't imagine that we'll become capital-P Pentecostals as a result of our conversations about our vision and values, but let's pray that we are open to what Christ has in store for us.
