Greetings from The Rt. Rev. Philip, the National Chaplain

“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace!” (Luke 2:14) Beloved in Christ, In the Christmas Season, we find ourselves pulled in many different directions by the world, by our families and by ourselves. The world pulls at us, as it seems to engage in political controversy, social upheavals and economic disasters. Our families pull at us as they make demands upon us for our time, for our support and for their well being. And we pull at ourselves as we seek to grow and fulfill ourselves and utilize our own potentials. Into this mix comes...

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.
