Today is Pentecost.
Happy Birthday to the Church!
When we meet in person, we share joys and concerns. As we gather separately, we can still do that. Take some time to reflect on your week. Pray for both those things that have given you joy, and those things that have given you worry. If you would like, you can share these in the comments below.
During Lent, we shared both on our website and on our Facebook page devotionals written by church members in past years. This served as a nice way to connect, even after we stopped meeting in person. Because it will still be some time before we are physically together, we thought that continuing some devotions would be a great way to continue reaching out.
Pick out a few verses or a passage of scripture that mean something to you. Write a paragraph or two (or more, if you need to!) about your reflections on that passage, and a small prayer. Email that to the church's email: email@example.com. We plan to share these on both the church website and Facebook page.
Our scripture for this lesson is Hosea 11:1-2, 7-10 and Hosea 12:1-2, 6-14.
We are a small, rural Presbyterian church in southwestern Pennsylvania.
