Easter and Pentecost mark two movements in God’s great work of resurrection. Here is the story of St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church, a small congregation in Oxford, North Carolina that is experiencing resurrection. The congregation’s junior warden describes the first phone call he received from their now-vicar as the “craziest Holy Spirit moment.” How apt! When God’s foolishness is greater than human wisdom, you’ve got to expect crazy Holy Spirit moments.
This story comes from Faith and Leadership, a great web site from Duke Divinity School. In the sidebar you can click on another article about a model the Episcopal Church is using for leadership in small churches. Read St. Cyprian’s story and be inspired for Easter and Pentecost!
