Pentecost is the season when we coöperate with God the Holy Spirit’s desire to truly renew the image and likeness of God in the Church. This 100+ day season marks the time when we do not resist God the Holy Spirit’s work of perfecting us. Like a fire, the Holy Spirit purges, purifies, and refines us. Like water, the Holy Spirit nourishes us and cultivates the fruit of the Spirit among us. Like wind, the Holy Spirit moves us out into the world into the next season as we work for God’s Kingdom.
We welcome the Rev. Justin Morgan to our community this day. Justin pastors Church on Morgan in Downtown Raleigh, NC. Jacob and Justin are friends and colleagues who share ideas and best practices with one another.
