WOW!  Ezekiel’s vision of the valley of the dry bones, the wonderful life-affirming imagery of Psalm 139, and the record of the Holy Spirit’s presence on Pentecost in Acts 2.  That’s quite a list of readings for this Sunday.  Come join us this Sunday at 9:00 am in the Ballard Middle School as we celebrate Pentecost.  And bring a few friends along – it would be a very Pentecost-like thing to do.

I will incorporate the readings into the message this week and Sue will bring treats.  The readings for this week are:

Ezekiel 37:1-14

Psalm 139:1-16

Acts 2:1-21

John 15:26-16:15

 In your prayers this week:

The Tjernagels in Spain; Pastors Duggi, Swen, David, Dake, Moksha, Peter, Jonathan, and Jayasingh as they minister in India

Janis and Ieva Diekonts, Don Richman, and David Breidenbach as they conduct mission work in Latvia and other parts of eastern Europe.
The people of South Sudan and Ethiopia as civil war continues to rage – and for the South Sudanese Christians who have been forced to flee to Ethiopia

The children and staff at the Bethany-Good Shepherd Orphanage in Tanuku.  PLEASE prayerfully consider whether you could help out with a donation to help out the orphanage.

The members of the Lutheran Church in Gudipadu, Andhra Pradesh, as they rebuild their church.  Pastor Duggi is beginning a ministry to help aging women in their village.  Support of all kinds is needed.

Our nation and its leaders – for a return to God and the values on which this country was built

I pray that the rest of your week goes well, and I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday at 9:00 am.

 

Blessings,

 

Scott
