Sunday is Pentecost. We celebrate the moment that the Holy Spirit “baptized” the disciples as Jesus had promised. It was pretty spectacular as the disciples were filled with the same abilities and gifts Jesus had revealed during HIS ministry. The empowering presence of the Holy Spirit gave them the ability to begin building the early church and taking the Gospel to all the world. Jesus said they would be baptized with the SPIRIT. However, there are other kinds of baptisms that don’t have the implication of the SPIRIT, but are still very important in our faith, helping us bear witness for Jesus the Christ. Sunday we also celebrate the baptism of Jennifer and Gloria Lee.
