I am so grateful to have the opportunity one last time at Church of the Palms to be part of Pentecost worship! It is one of my favorite worship services of the year!

Pentecost serves as a reminder of the divine gift of the Holy Spirit poured out upon each of us, providing us with strength, courage, and wisdom. The Holy Spirit empowers us to overcome challenges, seek harmony amidst differences, and build meaningful connections within our community. And the Holy Spirit calls us by the Gospel, enlightens us with unique divine gifts, sanctifies us, and keeps us in the true faith.

This weekend Church of the Palms will commemorate the ongoing outpouring of the Holy Spirit with worship services designed to inspire, uplift, and transform. Lauren McLeod will lead on Saturday with some powerful music. On Sunday, the May River Brass Quintet, Anna Marie, Janet, the Praise Team, and the Chancel Choir will provide extra enthusiasm to our praise and worship.

To symbolize the profound impact of the Holy Spirit, I encourage everyone attending the service to wear vibrant colors such as red, orange, or yellow. These colors represent the fire and light of the Holy Spirit, igniting our hearts and illuminating our souls. By adorning ourselves in these colors, we can visually demonstrate how the Holy Spirit has been graciously given to each one of us.

I am excited to share my proclamation entitled “Gaining a Clearer Perspective: From Chaos to Community.” I want to emphasize, one more time, how over the past 12 years, you, Church of the Palms, has been molded and transformed by the Holy Spirit into a unique community of faith and enabled to navigate the complexities of life, finding clarity and purpose even amidst the chaos.

Let’s gather together in the presence of the Holy Spirit and emerge with a renewed sense of purpose, hope, and community. Come, let us celebrate the power of Pentecost together!

Honored and humbled to be your sheepdog to the Lord Shepherd,
Pete+
