“Peace be with you,” Jesus said, and then he breathed out on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
Breathing out does not seem like a good idea these days. Still, we are encouraged to remember that the Holy Spirit, breath of God, is in our midst. In our streaming worship, this Sunday Pastor Heidi will begin a short series on the Holy Spirit; the choir will sing, and members of the McKinley community will lead us in worship. The Prayers of the People will feature prayers of lament and healing for those whose affected by fear and violence, especially the family and community of Ahmaud Arbery.
