Visions…Dreams…Mission in the 21st Century!

June 01, 2012

Imagine the early church circa 33 A.D. …the disciples gathered together in an upper room…some 50 days after the resurrection of their Lord… “When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.  And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.  Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages as the Spirit gave them ability.”(Acts 2: 1-4)…

The Spirit came upon them and they were transformed… “All who believed were together and had all things in common…Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people.” (Acts 2: 44,46)

Fast forward to the year 2012… Inter-Church Ministries (ICM) has had a long and noble history of working hard to bring all Christians together for the goodwill of all the people, respecting each others’ faith traditions and at the same time lifting up that which we have in common with the underlying affirmation and vision that all people should be able to live in a society where all persons respect each others’ religious traditions.

A dream…perhaps… and yet a mission in earnest in the 21st century!  In celebration of the spirit of unity that began when those early disciples were gathered together, each of us can play a significant part in fulfilling that dream!  With glad and generous hearts, your contributions to Inter-Church Ministries during this Pentecost season will help us realize our mission…our vision…our dream…working together…united in faith!  So, please we ask that you pray first…and then kindly consider a monetary gift to ICM — you may donate securely online by clicking the “Donate” tab in the toolbar above or by mailing your contributions to Inter-Church Ministries, 250 W. 7th Street, Erie, PA  16501.  Thanks be to God and to you for your support and prayers!
