Readings for Pentecost Sunday

Fr. Jim Heiser's
Homily for Pentecost


When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky
a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.

Now there were devout Jews

from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem.
At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd,
but they were confused
because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
They were astounded, and in amazement they asked,
“Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans?
Then how does each of us hear them in his native language?
We are Parthians, Medes, and Elamites,
inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia,
Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia,
Egypt and the districts of Libya near Cyrene,
as well as travelers from Rome,
both Jews and converts to Judaism, Cretans and Arabs,
yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues
of the mighty acts of God.”     ACTS 2:1-11

Everyone is cordially invited to participate in the new scripture study program starting Thursday, June 18. The class will be facilitated by Mary Slipp and will meet weekly on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30pm in the Parish Hall. We will be starting with the gospel of Matthew which is a 10 week session. Each class will begin with a discussion session based on Scripture that we will be given to read during the week. Discussion will be followed by viewing a DVD based on that week’s scripture. There is a fee of $15 for the Bible commentary and study guide. Please contact Stacy Preszler (751-4922) or Mary Slipp (673-1625) to sign up. We look forward to seeing you there!
