As you imagined being present at Pentecost, what came to your mind? Feel free to pause and take your time re-reading the first paragraph or go into more depth by reading Acts 2:1-41.
For myself, I can’t help but think of some very exciting days in my own life with all the emotional energy and excitement that came with them. Experience has taught me, however, that I need ordinary days between these exciting times to come back down to earth, so to speak, and to process the big exciting moments of life. I need times of normalcy and times of rest. But what did the believers do after the exciting times at Pentecost? “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” (Acts 2:42)
We are hoping to host a variety of fellowship events over the coming months. I encourage you to join as you are able. I encourage you to come and share what you are learning as you follow Jesus and ask others the same. I encourage you to pray together and eat together. And when these things aren’t possible in person, I encourage you to find alternate ways to devote yourselves to the community of believers so that, together, through the ordinary, we might all be encouraged to walk closer to Jesus
and enjoy praising God together.
