Pentecost Sunday, May 31: John 20: 19-23
Allow the word Peace to echo in your mind and heart. Let the word and all it may mean fill your body and remain within you. It is the constant promise of Jesus to his followers. It is a gift nobody can take from us. Give time each day to receive this gift of God’s Spirit. He gives it without even being asked. As you receive peace from God, send this peace in a prayer to those close to you or those who may sorely need prayer today.
