Welcome this holiday Sunday with its mix of celebration and remembrance.
Today is Pentecost Sunday when we celebrate the birthday of the Church. Acts 2 describes the coming of the Holy Spirit to the disciples and the conversion of thousands who heard the disciples speaking in their own languages. That movement of God’s Spirit continues here at Roswell Presbyterian as we worship, pray, give, study, and serve each Sunday.
Today is Memorial Day weekend when we remember the sacrifice of those who “gave the last full measure of devotion.” We celebrate Pentecost freely at RPC today because of those who sacrificed in the past. I believe we honor that sacrifice every time we worship, pray, give, study, and serve to make this a better world for all God’s children.
