This Week at St. Paul's

For Next Sunday: Isaiah 6:1−8; Acts 2:14a, 22−36; John 3:1−17; Psalm 29

May 24 – The Day of Pentecost – God gives Ezekiel a picture of complete hopelessness as he looks upon the valley of dry bones (Ezekiel 37:1-14). But God’s Spirit breathes life into them! The Holy Spirit breathed life into the Apostles on Pentecost and into us in our baptisms. There is no circumstance, no matter how impossible, and no sin, no matter how horrible, that can steal our hope in Jesus Christ. Prayer: Holy Spirit, breathe the breath of new life into us daily through Your Word and Sacraments. Amen.

Please let me know if you are interested in helping with the repack, and what day and time June 8th to the 12th would work best for you.
