What do a hospice director, retired corporate exec, paper mill employee, and 5th grader have in common?
- They all worship at First Presbyterian Church, Texarkana, Arkansas.
- God has moved in the lives of all four in profound ways.
- They are brave enough to come share their experiences this Sunday in celebration of Pentecost Sunday.
On the first Pentecost Sunday, God’s Spirit moved over the church in a profound way. Peter spoke to the crowds testifying to what God had done through Jesus and what God was doing on that day. We are told that “…with many words he bore witness and continued to exhort them.” Because of his sharing many came to believe and understand God more deeply.
Honoring God this Sunday
In that spirit, this Sunday three adults and one of the children in our church will be sharing ways God has touched their lives profoundly. I hope you will be there to be enriched by their stories, to support them in sharing their faith, and most importantly, to honor what God has done.
My playful challenge to you
To make this a little more fun – I have a challenge for you. I have a Starbucks gift card for the first person who can guess who all four are. No cheating — you can’t go sneak peaking at the bulletin or calling a staff member. Email me back with your best guess A.S.A.P.
Rev. Dr. Susan Arnold
