Father Steve’s Reflections 7/5/2020

Pentecost both marks the conclusion of the Easter season, and it marks the beginning of Christ’s
Church — as a people dedicated to Christ and to his Way of peace and acceptance and love.
The Scriptures say: “… you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my
witnesses …to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8 (NIV)
St. Chris’s is a place filled by the Holy Spirit. Through the Spirit we are empowered to thrive as a
growing, loving community, even when the World would rather have the churches dry up and blow
away.
We have much good work to do as Jesus’ Disciples, all of us. What is Jesus asking you to do?
Let’s live the Way that Christ has shown us. Let us all commit to serving and to building, the place he
has given us: St. Christopher’s, Killeen, Texas.
Every blessing!
