July 26. I set out for
. In my journey, hearing Mr.
Mellichamp was gone to Savannah, I was deeply concerned, having often heard her
say that she hoped God would keep him out of her sight, at least till her mind
was stronger, for if she was to see him then, she could deny him nothing. I
prayed earnestly that he who alone was able, would snatch her out of the fire.
And he did indeed stir up his power and save her with a great deliverance. Charleston

Pentecost is often seen as the beginning of the Church, and as we work through we’ll see how Luke has this idea of beginning in his mind and has the Genesis account of ‘in the beginning’ in his mind. There is a new birth recorded for us in this reading today, maybe there is a rebirth waiting for you TODAY.
When the day of Pentecost came,
Pentecost is a Jewish festival of Harvest. It is 50 days after the Passover Festival and was one of those festivals that Jews were expected to attend in Jerusalem. That’s why there is a crowd from all over the world.

On Tuesday 24 November 2015, just 3 weeks after we arrived in Norwich, God gave me the most beautiful rainbow that I have ever seen as I was leaving the Norwich library. I took a photo with my mobile, but before I transferred it to my computer I lost all my albums (longish and irrelevant story). However, I found this pic taken by Hayley Brasnett which, unsurprisingly, is much better than the one I took. Today I am looking at the Faithfulness of God, as we continue our series, The Nature of God.
