Pentecost 20 May 2018

Hi Table View Methodist Family, 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 😀😎😂😊😃😜😀 This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday.  The day on which remember how the Holy Spirit was poured out on the first disciples.  The feast of Pentecost (feast of weeks) marked the end of the barley harvest in Israel; a holiday and an offering of the first fruits. It was also celebrated as the anniversary of the giving of the law to Moses at Sinai. Because of this link with Pentecost, and the offering of the first fruits we invite you to bring offerings for our love cupboard this Sunday, that we can distribute to those in need.  As we bring our offerings, we celebrate that God has given us life. Without the power of the Holy Spirit there would be no life: "When you send your Spirit,  they are created,  and you renew the face of the ground." - Psalm 104:30 God's Holy Spirit is with us - giving us life.  When we look at the harvest we remember the mystery of God that makes all things possible
