We are now moving through the season of the Christian Year that the Uniting Church Calendar calls "After Pentecost" and describes as "A period of time that varies in length depending on whether Easter is early or late. In this period the church recalls its faith in the Holy Trinity. It seeks to relate its faith as a people of God to Christ's mission in the world. It commences with Trinity Sunday and concludes with the feast of Christ the King." At Pentecost we rejoiced in the coming of the Holy Spirit.
Here is a prayer from Brother Roger of Taize:
Holy Spirit, enable us
to turn toward you at every moment.
So often we forget
that you are dwelling in us,
that you are praying in us,
that you are loving in us.
Your presence in us is trust
and constant forgiveness.
Rev Norah Norris
