                                                                        Pentecost Eve                                                                         Rom 8:12-17                                                                         6/7/14             People want to belong.  They don’t want to be completely isolated.  They want to be part of a larger whole, because that larger group of people provides us a sense of identity and security.             And so we identify ourselves as members of different groups.  The largest group is that of our nation.

Pentecost Sermon

Today’s Old Testament reading takes us back to the new dawn of civilization, just after the worldwide destruction of the flood in Noah’s day. By this time all the ancient kingdoms and wonders of the world would have faded into oblivion, violently crushed by earthquakes and drowned by miles of rushing water.
