In this week’s focus scripture Jesus introduces the idea of the “Holy Spirit” – a force that will accompany them on their faith journeys when Jesus is no longer with them. Think back to the beginning of the Easter season. Jesus’ disciples are sad and afraid because their teacher and friend is dead, his body missing. When have you been disheartened and fearful about the future? The indwelling of the Spirit continues to gather the disciples and is the way that God intended for Jesus’ disciples – and us today – to remain connected as a faith community.
This week – write a note (no e-mail – put pen to paper!) to someone in your church community whom you haven’t seen in a while. Check in and let them know that you are thinking of them.
