This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost when God pours his Spirit upon the disciples. Eugene Peterson notes

God gave us the miracle of congregation the same way he gave us the miracle of Jesus, by the Descent of the Dove. The Holy Spirit descended into the womb of Mary in the Galilean village of Nazareth. Thirty or so years later the same Holy Spirit descended into the collective spiritual womb of men and women, which included Mary, who had been followers of Jesus… The first conception gave us Jesus; the second conception gave us church. Eugene H. Peterson,   The Pastor - A Memoir  (New York: HarperOne, 2011), p. 127

I pray that we might see God's Spirit transforming us individually and as a congregation formed by his presence.
