In her Pentecost Sunday sermon, guest preacher Rev. Da Vita McCallister shows us how triumph and tragedy walk hand in hand in the story of Jesus’ disciples following his death and resurrection. The disciples gathered on that day would still have been experiencing the trauma of Jesus’ crucifixion and yet the Holy Spirit sweeps through them.
