After The Beginning #1

Sunday was the celebration of Pentecost, when the Church remembers the coming of the Holy Spirit on those who know Jesus, making them into one body and one people for the glory of God (Acts 1:1-13)

This week I want to spend some time thinking through these things.

For now, enjoy this collect from the Episcopal BCP for use on Pentecost:

Almighty God, who on this day didst open the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of thy Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen
