The Melanesian Martyrs' Memorial Church of St Andrews

Easter 7a, 2020 – Sunday After Ascension

This is the final Sunday of the Easter season and next week we celebrate Pentecost. Our reading from Acts this morning gives expression to our yearning for the Holy Spirit. This yearning for the Spirit is very much a part of the Resurrection faith we celebrate this season. Although as the church we acknowledge that the Spirit already dwells among us and within each of us who in baptism have “put on Christ,” we continue to pray, “Come, Holy Spirit.” We continue to seek divine inspiration for the work we do and the life we lead “in the world.” We pray for the Spirit to come, even while we acknowledge the Spirit’s abiding presence.
