GA

*For those not familiar with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we have a General Assembly every two years where all Disciples are invited for a multi-day gathering.

images-1

I’ve always loved Pentecost. I’m not entirely sure why, but the Pentecost story in the Book of Acts always resonated with me. There are these followers of Jesus, now alone and without his guidance.

When I worked in a residential facility for people with HIV/AIDS in Texas, I’ll admit I developed a little bit of a grudge against the “historically black” Christian church.
