Pentecost – 28 May 2023

  1. Saltbush Community (Mark Faulkner)
    Pentecost – Acts 2: 1-21

Each year, down throughout the ages, people and gatherings of Christians have drawn into our lives and conversation the way of God as Spirit amongst us.  Our reading is an ancient expression of the coming of the Holy Spirit in the early church and today in Word Around The Bush we consider the centrality of life beyond the physical and the ways we experience the Holy Spirit in our own lives and the world today.


  1. Project Reconnect (Sharon Hoogland)
    28th May 2023 (Year A Pentecost) “The Breath of God”

The scared and frightened followers were hiding in a locked room – into that fear Jesus came and said, ‘Peace be with you’. The heart of Jesus is to give peace and to make an eternal difference in the lives of others. The breath of the Holy Spirit is transformative. Wherever it blows it will bring new life and vitality.
