Hope and Empowerment – Pentecost

Spitball: hope and empowerment. Equipping. Peter who denied Jesus and was willing to pack up and go back to fishing becomes the one bold to preach: transformation! Rejuvenated. Boldness. Variety of languages to reach others – the creation of community. Gospel becomes viable to the outsider. Can hear and understand the Gospel – Philip with the Ethiopian Eunuch who seeks to understand. Accepting the past to look to the future. Baptism of the Spirit – renewal.
