The Renewing Work of God

We worship a creating God who calls us into this same creative, spiritual energy. Creativity comes from God and is expressed in a myriad of ways and means.

Pentecost: When the Spirit Moves

Pentecost has arrived. It is the fiftieth day or the seventh Sunday from Easter Sunday.

The Spirit is alive […]
