"And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting" Acts 2:2
The Spirit may not come to us like a violent wind; maybe, like a sudden inspiration, or as a studied response to a situation we've been pondering. In any case, the Spirit is calling us to give of ourselves in care and support of others like our church family, our community or the many in need further away.

Sustaining Earth, Our Island Home
“I would like to share with you an initiative from the National Episcopal Church's office of the Most Rev. Michael Curry. "Sustaining Earth, Our Island Home" tackles the Episcopal Church's pledge for the care of creation and provides support for individuals and parishes seeking to take those incremental steps toward living in a more sustainable, moral manner when it comes to the impact we have upon the Earth and our capacity to continue to live on it. To paraphrase Bishop Bascom the biggest environmental problems are not biodiversity, water usage, or climate change but greed, selfishness, and apathy.
To learn more about this program, please visit http://www.sustainislandhome.org/ and enroll yourself in this program. Please remember to list St. Aidan’s, Olathe as your parish. Our Bishop will reward the parish with the most participation.”
