As a young person, there are no more comforting words than “I got you”. When you’re out in the deep end, clinging to the side of the pool, hearing a parent’s words “I got you” are just what you need. The story of Pentecost is full of special effects, but it is also the story of terrified early Christians, who are assured by God that He has them, and with that knowledge, they run out into the streets fearless, ready to do His work.
At Zion, we’re heading into the deep end, with Pastor Summer’s retirement coming at the end of this month. It’s a scary time, but God has had us for over 300 years, and he has us now.
