The Fire of Pentecost

Posted by on June 10, 2021 in Archives, News | Comments Off on The Fire of Pentecost

The Fire of Pentecost

And when the days of Pentecost were drawing to a close, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a violent wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them parted tongues as of fire, which settled upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in foreign tongues, even as the Holy Spirit prompted them to speak (Acts 2, 1-4). Pentecost—the infilling of the apostles with the Holy Spirit—the birthday of the church… a day of hope. Christ has bodily ascended into...

Pentecost 20201 Bishop Duncan

Dear Sisters in Christ,The Season of Pentecost is upon us. It is the “long season” in the Church’s year and will last until the 4 weeks of the Advent Season preceding Christmas. At one time this season was referred to as the Trinity Season. Pentecost references the Holy Spirit coming down upon the Apostles and their empowerment as Disciples to preach and teach the Gospel of the Risen Lord Jesus to all people “…even to the ends of the earth!”The Gospel challenges all of us to not only proclaim the Gospel but also to live it out in our lives. How might we share, invite, visit, include others...

Easter Message from Bishop Duncan

“ALLELUIA!” “CHRIST IS RISEN!” “THE LORD IS RISEN INDEED!” “ALLELUIA!” Dear Sisters in Christ,Central to our faith is that “Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again!” In the early Church it was dangerous to be a follower of Jesus. Christians were often persecuted, enslaved and executed for sport and amusement. That the faith survived is testament to those who believed and risked everything that we could ever imagine.We give thanks for those who, nevertheless, witnessed to their faith and preached the Gospel that we now are called to share. These were the Saints known to us...

Mary Magdalene Fund Easter Ingathering

But whoever has been forgiven little loves little. “Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”  The Mary Magdalene Fund supports the operations, work, and mission of The Episcopal Community.

Funds may be used to provide services, materials, and communications that exceed the regular budget; to help with expenses of providing retreats, workshops and annual meetings; to defray costs of providing services at General Convention of The Episcopal Church, and to help...
