This week starts our sermon series on the Season of Creation. Every week, for the rest of the month of September, we will be asked to “Consider the birds” as we hear about a different bird found in scripture and how we can use them as a reminder of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

This week also includes a testimony from Jean Bone on a spiritual experience from nature, and a brief set of facts on pigeons and doves from Brenda Miller.

Our Scripture this week is from Luke 3: 21-22

Jesus’ baptism

21 When everyone was being baptized, Jesus also was baptized. While he was praying, heaven was opened 22 and the Holy Spirit came down on him in bodily form like a dove. And there was a voice from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I dearly love; in you I find happiness.”
