Introduction - Pentecost 2012

Intro to the Readings
Acts 2:1-21 Or Ezekiel 37:1-14 – Psalm 104:25-35, 37b
Romans 8:22-27 Or Acts 2:1-21 – John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15
 The readings from Acts is the fulfilment of a prophesy and it also affirming of prophesy as the Holy Spirit is given.
From Ezekiel we listen as the Lord directs him to prophesy to “the breath” so that the Lord’s people may have hope.
Psalm 104 acclaims that the Lord provides for all creation. The birds that return in the spring and the fish of the sea.
Writing to the Romans the Apostle Paul speaks of our inward groans, our longing, for God’s Spirit.
From Saint John as the Lord Jesus speaks of the Spirit who is to come.

Let us listen to sacred words that speak to us of our God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
