This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost. This is a day of celebration that a lot of people call the birthday of the church. It's the day the people heard the good news of Jesus' message: God's love for everyone – in the language they needed to hear. The language of their home lands.
We could ask ourselves what languages do we need to speak so that everyone can hear? The language of twitter and text; the language of technology and economics and science and of education. So many languages so many ways to speak the gospel. How do we translate the message of Pentecost? Could it be simply this?
God is with you. God loves you. God is there for you when you think you are alone. God’s Spirit comes at the most unexpected times with courage and strength when you think there is none.
