PASTOR’S LETTER PENTECOST

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed!
Now what?

Yes, Christ has died, Christ is Risen and yes, Christ will come again and again and again!

On the day of Pentecost, May 20th, we celebrate the coming of Christ’s Holy Spirit! That’s what Christ keeps on coming to us! That ‘s the point. He may look a little different but he keeps coming into our presence in many and various ways! That’s what our gospels are about during the Easter seasons. Christ keeps coming to the disciples and they do not recognize him at first! But, he keeps on coming, greeting us, Peace be with you and breathing new life into us - “receive the Holy Spirit”! Pentecost!

Pentecost is the Day when the disciples finally got it. Jesus can be present in different ways. He is God’s spirit of love. He comes to us in the bread broken and, the wine poured for the forgiveness of our sins, our brokeness! Now what? We become what we eat - the body of Christ in the world today, His presence!

Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed!
Alleluia!

I look forward to greeting and serving you all at the Lord’s table each and every Lord’s day! That’s what!

Peace be with you ,

 

The Rev. Ronald M. Klose,
Pastor
