April 29, 2016: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: SPIRIT
We start a new sermon series this Sunday. We will be drawing on the remarkable material John’s Gospel shares from the last night Jesus was physically present with his disciples, especially focusing on the passages that tell us about the Holy Spirit. All five passages that we will explore come from the same night in the life of Jesus and his disciples. I am using the title, It Happened One Night.
What do you know about the Holy Spirit? Would you say that you have experienced the Holy Spirit? Would you say the Holy Spirit is more characterized by love or power or guidance? Or is that experience more one of peace or chaos? This Sunday we will begin in John 14:1-7. We touched on this passage a few weeks back because we were learning about the disciple Thomas, and he is certainly a part of this discussion. The sermon title is a quote from Jesus saying, “I Am The Way.”
Holy Communion will also enrich our time together in worship this week. I hope you will take the advice of John Wesley and participate in Communion every time you have opportunity. It is a powerful means of nourishing your spirit as you connect with the power and presence of the Holy Spirit of God!
