Acts 2: 1-21. It’s Pentecost Sunday, often called “the birthday of the Church.” Pentecost celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit to the disciples, fifty days after Easter. It was already a day of celebration for the Jewish community, and Jews from around the Mediterranean were there for the festivities. Many languages were present, and as the Spirit came to the disciples, they were suddenly able to speak the languages of those around them.

Acts 1: 1-11. This weeks’s scripture tells the story of Jesus’ departure from his disciples, some forty days after Easter. In his final conversation he tells them to stay in Jerusalem until the coming of God’s Spirit. They want to know what will happen and when; instead, they are told to wait.

Acts 16: 6-15. In this week’s scripture we follow the Apostle Paul as he travels among the towns and cities of the eastern Mediterranean. In a dream he sees a vision of a man calling him to Macedonia – a province in modern day Greece. He sets forth on the first Christian outreach to the continent of Europe and, in the city of Philippi, discovers new possibilities he could never have planned.
