Rector’s Letter

Dear friends

June is the month of Pentecost - an event which took place on the well-established Jewish festival of Firstfruits, which was observed at the beginning of the wheat harvest. It was exactly 50 days after the Passover, the time of Jesus’ crucifixion.

Jesus had told His apostles that something big was going to happen, and that they were to wait for it in Jerusalem, instead of returning to Galilee. Jesus had plans for his apostles – but He knew they could not do the work themselves – they would need His help and so the apostles and disciples waited in Jerusalem, praying together for several days..... Then it happened .....on that fateful morning there was suddenly the sound as of a mighty rushing wind. Tongues of flame flickered on their heads, and they began to praise God in many tongues – to the astonishment of those who heard them. The curse of Babel (Genesis 11: 1- 9) was dramatically reversed that morning. The Holy Spirit came to indwell the apostles and disciples of Jesus: and the Church was born! The Christians were suddenly full of life and power, utterly different from their former fearful selves.

Peter gave the first ever sermon of the Christian Church that morning: proclaiming Jesus was the Messiah. His boldness in the face of possible death was in marked contrast to the man who had denied Jesus 50 days before. The end result– 3,000 people were added to their number that day!

So, this has got me wondering– what if we prayed, earnestly prayed for this village, what might happen? Might 3,000 be added to God’s family? I like to think of Moira as a village where people come to meet with God. Will you join me in praying that God’s Holy Spirit will be outpoured in this area bringing people to faith in Him?

Inspired by God, Peter did not keep the Good News to just the believers. Instead, he immediately addressed the local crowds; this good news was for them too! The ‘Church’ was ‘born’ that morning, and its very first action was to evangelise - the church and mission are inseparable.

So Pentecost brings us all a challenge: if local people don’t learn of the Good News of Christianity from us, where will they hear of it? If our church does not pray for them, who will? The good news for Christians is that we have the help of the Holy Spirit to carry out this daunting task., so let’s ask Him right now, to fill us up and send us out.

Love

Joanne
