Pentecost is here! My favorite feast day of the entire year! That’s right, I LOVE Pentecost! This is the day of the year in which we celebrate that the Holy Spirit has been given to each of us; and we celebrate that God calls each of us through the Holy Spirit to being active and intentional disciples. This is a reminder we need throughout our lives, not just on Pentecost, but all throughout the year. I think sometimes we allow ourselves to become way to passive in our faith. Rather than moving with the Spirit, we allow ourselves to relax into a pattern of just waiting for the Spirit to move us. Do not wait! Get involved! Jump in head first and take some genuine chances. There is no better time than now to get involved in a new ministry, to go and perform an act of kindness and mercy to a neighbor, or to get involved in our community by volunteering for something in your town or neighborhood. Each and every day is an opportunity to practice intentional Discipleship. In doing this, we are moving with the Spirit, not just sitting back waiting for the Spirit to move us.
