  • Adult Formation – A theological reflection of John 15:26-27; 16 4b-15 will be facilitated by Friar Brian, and everyone is asked to read the Scripture beforehand. “The church is born at Pentecost. The promised Advocate comes and those who cowered in fear now burst forth from their prisons with a message that can be understood in any language. The message: God is for everyone and anyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. We are still unpacking this message today as we peek out from the prisons we find ourselves hiding within.” Handouts will be provided. Westminster”
