The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
A simple definition if the word “to seek” may be: an attempt to find. But reading into more definitions, they begin to emphasize an “engaged longing” to find. Going yet a step further, I found that in seeking God, it is a longing to be in his presence. That we are to seek to find his “face”. I thought to myself, “there are as many different versions of seeking, and seeing, her “face” as there are beings that have ever lived, are living now and those that will come into this world. It is also important to point out that the message is to continually, constantly seek to he in her presence.
Today I would like to share with you how the divine light has guided me to search and seek out the face of God. How my parents’ infinite love and the guidance of my elders lead me to live among the Nicaraguan people. My journey is one of seeking to find God’s by seeing life through their eyes, and being in relationship with them.

The Third Sunday after Pentecost
Who has the authority? That question has come up a lot for me. Like many kids in my culture of origin, I was raised by authoritarian parents. There was never any question about who was the boss of me. It was my parents – until I reached adolescence and began to be the boss of myself. I wasn’t a good boss because, when a child grows up just following the orders of her parents and other designated adults, she doesn’t learn to trust her own, inner moral authority.

So how come you are not all wearing red?
Where are your tongues of fire headbands?
Where are the red balloons?
Why didn’t we have a big potluck breakfast before church?
Ok, you are all looking a bit skeptical. Are you wondering, what’s the big deal? We’ve never done anything special for Pentecost here at Seekers.
After all, we’re not some Pentecostalist church, being slain in the spirit and speaking in tongues.
We’re not Roman Catholic or even high church Episcopalians. So why should we make a big deal out of Pentecost?
