From the Director’s desk…
Greetings to you and to all members of the Sacred Space community, scattered far and wide, as we celebrate the great Feast of Pentecost.
The first Pentecost was a day of high drama in Jerusalem. Savour the power in this text!
‘Suddenly there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind. It filled the entire house. A tongue, as of fire, rested on each of the disciples. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages. The gospel was preached to all the world’ (see Acts 2:1-4; 5-13).
The first Pentecost made the fire of the gospel spread round the Mediterranean world. A mighty wind blew it from Jerusalem to Rome, and then outwards and down through the centuries and across the world to wherever city, town or quiet place where you are reading these words today. Be careful, or you may catch fire!
Brian Grogan
