Acts 2: 5 – 18 Jill A. Kirchner-Rose, MDIV, DMIN – It is still the season of Pentecost. Pentecost affirms diversity and multiplicity. Over and over again, our scripture passage from Acts uses the conjunction “and.” Our God is an And God. God functions with the conjunction “and.” On this Pride Sunday, we will specifically celebrate the ways in which the Pentecost And is made manifest in the life of one of our families in our faith community. Emma Malonelord recently released a commercial for the army, a commercial which celebrates the And of creation.
