(This teaching sermon on the Holy Spirit was preached on Pentecost 2010 at Lebanon UMC in Mebane, North Carolina.)
“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.” –Acts 2: 1-4/
Last fall, Jason Byassee, editor of the Call & Response blog on Faith & Leadership and a contributing editor for The Christian Century, joined us for one of Thriving Rural Communities’ Rural Ministry Colloquia.
During that talk, he shared from his book manuscript, “The Gifts of the Small Church.” A recording of the discussion is available for download on iTunes U.
