This Sunday is Pentecost, the festival day when we remember the Holy Spirit coming to the disciples and inspiring them to share goodness with the world. If you want to, you can wear red at home and maybe have a candle ready to light with us as you watch worship.
Either way, this Sunday’s sermon should be a GREAT one not just for you, but for and friends, neighbors, or relatives you think might enjoy such things. It’ll have personal illustrations and be easy to understand. We’ve been trying to make the sermons more broad-based as we’ve been putting them online anyway. This one should especially appeal.
Since we’ve been online, we’ve already had a couple requests via our website contact form, asking how people can participate in our community. We welcome this and we’ll evolve our view of church to make sure that they can join in too. Go ahead and make that evolution with us. It doesn’t really matter so much whether a participant is in person or a member. That’s not what makes worship valid. When God’s word and love go out and touch people, God is at work. We’re all a part of that process.
I hope you all get a chance to watch and participate in the Pentecost sermon next week. Pass it along to friends too! You can watch it on Facebook @SOVBoise together with some of your fellow church members when it posts at 9:30 on Sunday or access it any time of the week at our website, myboisechurch.org.
