Pentecost, 2019

At that first Pentecost, the gathered Church began to live into their gifts.  We know Holy Spirit will not leave nor forsake us! In our time, the Massachusetts Council of Churches sees the wide variety of gifts at work across the Commonwealth.

This Pentecost week, we will be telling three stories of how we are doing work that demonstrates how the combined witness of Christians across Massachusetts is stronger than any one church or denomination could be on their own.

#1: UNIQUELY POSITIONED AND EQUIPPED
When Christian churches in Sri Lanka were violently attacked on Easter morning, our hearts were all broken.  In a time of crisis, the Massachusetts Council of Churches has the experience and the relationships to lead.  With the Sri Lanka Association of New England, we convened interfaith leaders to lead a vigil on Boston Common.  We cared for the brokenhearted. We are uniquely positioned to pull disparate groups together and to offer support for busy church leaders.  Over 250 people gathered for #RememberingSriLanka, in a show of solidarity that comforted those who mourn and made visible the diverse Body of Christ. 

We hope you will affirm our unique role by joining us with a financial gift, joining us at our events, and joining us in prayer for one another

In hope,
 Rev. Laura
