This is my first time attempting to blog on the site, so I hope I’m doing it right.

Last night at the Sellers’ house, we shared a meal of spanakopita squares and buttered rice while also taking communion. April informed us that it was the day of Pentecost, and shared a blog post explaining why we should remember and celebrate it. Basically, Pentecost commemorates the birth of the Church, when the Holy Spirit came to all believers as Jesus had promised. For the story, see Acts 2.

As we adjourned to the living room, we  reminded each other that Christ was in our midst and that we we alive in Him and dead to sin. (This was a reminder of what we had discussed the week before.) We also discussed prayer and what we should do when we are given no specific answer to our prayers. Then we decided that the babies needed to have some outside time and we took a walk around the block. We had a good time (especially Joy) and talked with various people we met on the way.

When we returned to the house, we discussed various ways our diets can affect our health as well as some health concerns of several of the brothers and sisters. We annointed those with concerns with oil and prayed for them.
