Without Pentecost the Christ-event – the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus – 

 remains imprisoned in history as something to remember, think about and reflect on. 

 The Spirit of Jesus comes to dwell within us, so that we can become living Christs here and now.

Henri Nouwen

Dear Friends

Let us intentionally uphold in prayer the various crises in our world, that the Lord would redeem our brokenness through His love and bring healing to our world. May we remain mindful of the struggles and the conflicts in our own country and pray for wisdom in resolving them.

In our prayers this week let us give thanks for our many blessings, and continue to pray for our neighbours, friends and family.

Let us continue to pray for the post-flood restoration work in BC after the previous and present floods, and particularly for the ministry of Christ Church, Hope, B.C, and also Hay River, Northwest Territories.

A Prayer for Peace: 

Oh God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace.

Let the design of your great love shine on the waste of our wraths and sorrows,

and give peace to your Church, peace among nations,

peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts;

through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen     (BAS) pg 677

Pentecost came with the sound of a mighty rushing wind, a violent blast from heaven!

Heaven has not exhausted its blasts, but our danger is we are getting frightened of them.      Smith Wigglesworth
