Wearing or Bearing Your Cross (CD)
Pentecost brings our hearts and minds to the coming of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives us power to live the life that we are called to live before the world. Pentecost connects the dots between the cross of the Jesus and the cross of those who follow Him. A disciple is a cross bearer, living in vertical relationship with God and in horizontal relationship with others. We bear our cross in the power of the Holy Spirit. What is this cross? What has this cross said to people of color? We share in the cross in suffering that we might share in the glory that will be revealed in us. Are you wearing your cross or are you bearing your cross?
