Sara walks us through the Pentecost story, pointing out how we tend to focus on the part about tongues. We get distracted by the expressions of the Spirit and forget the story is also about the formation of the Spirit. How can we position ourselves to receive the Spirit to be the Helper she was intended to be? The Spirit that arrived on Pentecost catapulted the disciples into a season of empowering and faithfulness. How can we step into that same story today? We are being called to faithfulness. Are our current rhythms forming us to be empowered and faithful? How does the Spirit want to form us in this season of rest? Acts 2:1-21; Luke 3:15-16; John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15; Romans 8:22-27; Ezekiel 37:1-14.
