Travel Testimonies

This summer Good Shepherd will share in a summer series called “Travels with the Spirit: A Summer Travelogue Through the Book of Acts.”

The Book of Acts is all about travel. “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” The book begins with Jesus’ Ascension and the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost. The Spirit is the one in charge throughout the book, and the church is always struggling to catch up to what the Spirit is doing. In fact, we could call Acts the Fifth Gospel, the Gospel of the Holy Spirit! As the church travels, it learns and grows and changes in response to the Spirit’s leading.

Each Sunday in worship, from May 29-September 4th, a Good Shepherd member will be invited to share a brief reflection about how travel has impacted your faith. Please consider if you would like to do this. As you consider this, you can ponder these questions: What has been the most meaningful or impactful trip you have taken? How has travel changed you or changed the way you view the world? Have you felt closer to God as a result of your travels? Have your views of God changed as a result of your travels?
