A group of people began holding worship services in the Nature Study Building on Western Boulevard.

This was the birth of Morning Star Presbyterian Church.

Many years before that (nearly 2,000!) another group of people met in an upper room in Jerusalem on Pentecost

and the Holy Spirit filled their hearts.

This was the birth of the Christian Church.

Myrlene’s Weekly Intrique

In the very early days of the Christian Church, right after Pentecost, one of the most striking characteristics of this community of faith was its generosity. People sold property and gave the money to those in need. They shared willingly with other church members. Generosity is at the core of God's character, so it makes sense that God's church would also have that characteristic as a dominant feature. Generosity is a natural outcome of trusting God. It is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. But (you knew that was coming!) sometimes things get in the way, and that natural flow of generosity gets stopped up. What do you think can get this natural flow going again? Check out I Timothy 6:6-10 and 17-19, along with our core verse Romans 8:11.
