May is Global Civility Awareness Month. Choosing civility is hard work and it is needed more so in our world where hate seems to be popping up.  May continues to the 7th Sunday after Easter by honoring ASCENSION Sunday - which commemorates the day that Jesus ascended into Heaven [Acts 1:1-11]

May 24 Aldersgate Day.

John Wesley undergoes a profound religious experience. He felt that his heart was
"strangely warmed." He describes it as:
I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for salvation; and an assurance was given me that he
had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.

May 28 Seventh Sunday of Easter Ascension Sunday
John 17:1-11
Jesus prays for the Disciples
Acts 1:6-14
After spending 40 days appearing to the disciples after Jesus’ resurrection, the Disciples
thought Jesus was going to restore the earth to the Realm of Heaven, but instead, as Christ
promised to send the Holy Spirit to give them power; Christ ascended into Heaven and
disappeared in a cloud. Jesus is both human and divine, and the ascension is an illustration
of Christ’s divine nature.

June hosts Pentecost -   celebrating when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostle and other followers.  Many view this day as the Church’s birthday.  Also, the month of June honors National GLBT [Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender] Pride Month.  At United Church, we welcome God’s love to all persons of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, physical and mental abilities, and economic classes.  Sadly, on June 18th, we will celebrate our Pastor Catina’s end of a decade of service at United Church.

Matthew 9:35-10:8 [9-23]

God is with us in our moments of greatest joy, and God is with us through the inevitable chaos and

sorrow that life brings. God is with us in our friends and family, and God is with us in strangers who

suddenly show up and bring us a word of hope and clarity in the midst of the jumbled, chaotic messes

of life. God is with us in the familiar, and God is with us in the unexpected.

This is how the Holy Spirit works within us.  Today’s scripture is about Jesus sending out the Twelve

into a world of wolves.  Today is also Pastor Catiana’s last Sunday at United Church.  We send her out

to her new church; As well as, she sends us out to continue doing God’s work at United Church.

Verses 7-8: “As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The realm of heaven has come near.’  Heal the

sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you

have received; freely give.”
