Gifts of the Spirit

This week we celebrated the day of Pentecost when the whole church was together, gifted with the Holy Spirit, and suddenly able to hear each other even though they spoke different languages.

Church at Thessalonica

The Book of Acts tells us about the spread of the early church and the opposition it faced from established powers. Guest Seminarian Alex Stall explores how today’s church also faces opposition from “the world.” As we slowly emerge from isolation, can today’s church respond to the call to reshape the world?

Accompanying Scripture:
Acts 17: 1-9, 1 Thessalonians 1-10, Mark 13: 9-11
