Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

May 28, 2023 message: “Spirit Poured Out: Dare to Dance Again”

Ezekiel has a vision of a valley full of bones receiving life, breath, sinew, and flesh after encountering the word of God. When they arise, they receive Spirit and they dance! As Easter people, we celebrate the Spirit that continues to give life and breath to our dry bones. We dare to dance in the face of fear, in the face of cynicism, in the face of despair. We dare to dance “as long as we live” for we, like the early Christians, are the recipients of the Spirit of God which intercedes even when we think we can’t make it to the dance floor. In hope we are saved!

This is the seventh and final message in the series, “Dare to Dance Again.” Pastor Mary’s Pentecost message is based on Ezekiel 37: 1-14 and Acts 2: 1-21.

The all-church worship service is available in its entirety on YouTube.
