Sacred and Spiritual Links - Monday 1 June 2015

Supplied by a colleague in England:

Here are some things which may be of interest: #1 Bishop Rennis Ponniah on what the Holy Spirit coming means for us; #2 Ele Mumford with some challenging thoughts on the gifts of the Spirit; #3 Bishop Ken Clarke in Singapore asking what we do with Jesus; #4 some materials to think about for Trinity Sunday; #9 the challenge of Jesus in Sunday Worship - well worth listening to; #13 weary of praying for the persecuted church? They need our prayers and and for us to remember them and tell their story; #15 lots of interesting and encouraging stories; #16 challenging story from a Rwandan who encountered Christ on Alpha.
