a Christian community committed to
growing in faith, serving in love, living in Christ,
and extending God's gracious welcome to all.
On the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended upon Christians gathered in Jerusalem and the Church was born. From that point forward, we have understood God's Spirit to be—in some mysterious, unquantifiable way—the animating force that guides, strengthens, and equips God's people to carry on the work of Jesus in the world. This series considers the four key metaphors for the Spirit of God—breath, wind, fire, and dove—in order to better understand this least-understood member of the Trinity.
