The Big Idea: Throughout this season, we have proclaimed that love is what binds us (the root of “religion” is religio, to bind) to God, to Jesus, to each other. Love is what binds us together. On the day of Pentecost, the church received the power of the Holy Spirit to let that message flow out to all. We are all in this together, bound in love. The power of this message is more important than ever to spread in the world today. Let us be a community of messengers, letting love and compassion flow from our hearts to all people.
