From Pastor Larry Klinker:
"We cannot speak, share, or give voice to our stories of what it means to us to have a relationship with God, without the gift of the Holy spirit, without the power of the Spirit, without the guidance of the Holy Spirit.... The Spirit has already been poured into our lives in our baptism, and now we need to nourish our relationship with God in the Spirit by living within a faith community that studies its scriptures and dedicates itself to a life of prayer. It is through prayer that we make ourselves available to God. It is in prayer that we seek the Spirit's guidance and leadership. It is in prayer that openings are created for us to hear God's story and for others to hear our story in God from us."
