At church this morning, we celebrated Pentecost. We had a couple of speakers from a local faith-based rescue mission. One speaker worked for the mission, and the other benefited from it. See here to learn more about the mission. I may donate to it, every now and then. It’s important that people have a place to go when they are down and out, a place where people care and can help them get on their feet, when they are ready.
We sang some songs that I liked. I particularly enjoyed “Come, Holy Spirit,” which is about the Spirit being a soothing, healing presence. The song ministered to my pastor, as well.
A member of the church gave the message. He gave us his testimony of
how he came to believe in God, and he read an article that he wrote a
while back about the benefits of going to church. You can read that here.
There are times when I get overly introspective spiritually,
especially when I read or hear something that makes me feel spiritually
inadequate. But who cares if I am not good enough? Nobody is! What’s
important is to care for others, wherever they may be.
