We continue in our series on the Disruptive Spirit in Acts 2, this time turning our focus to the ways the Holy Spirit disrupts a culture of exclusion. If God is a wall-breaker, breaking down the barriers that get in the way of our relationship with God and with one another, are we joining Him in breaking down walls or are we building them up?
In our second week looking at the Disruptive Spirit, we turn to Acts 2 and Ezekiel 37. The Holy Spirit confronts and disrupts a culture of death.
It’s Pentecost Sunday. For the month of June we’ll be looking at the holy disruption of a Holy Spirit. The Spirit comes as wind and violent storm in Acts 2, and we see a pattern of wind and storm all throughout the book of Acts. Perhaps we’re guilty of putting the Spirit in a box, or believing the Spirit is only ever like a gentle breeze. God shows up like a disrupting wind in our culture, in our communities, and in our lives.
The wilderness is a natural place of scarcity, chaos, and uncertainty. So often when we hit scarcity, chaos, and uncertainty in our lives, we find ourselves asking, “Is God even with us?” This week we will declare the truth that not only is God with us in the wilderness, but He is faithful to provide our every need during seasons of scarcity, chaos, and uncertainty.
Join us this coming Sunday for an outdoor gathering where we will reflect on our service and learning Sunday together, enjoying a picnic and communion together.
Pack your own picnic lunch and bring your own chair or blanket. Join us at noon at 22 Willow. All are welcome.
