My Pentecost Journal

"When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together.  And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were.

Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them."

And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim."

-Acts 2:1-4

​​Create your Writing Space

Whether by yourself or in groups...

Sitting under blue skies

In a cove,

Energized by the sea,

over coffee

Inspiration whispers


​"Come, sit with me."

Write - and the journey begins-

Writing is balm for the soul

Planning a Morning of Reflection?  

The journey of writing is like a pilgrimage.  

Along the road,

we befriend others as well

as our deepest memories.  

Our souls yearn

to find meaning and to give thanks.
