St. John's Franklin Podcast

Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “Enlarged in the Waiting” for Pentecost Sunday on May 24, 2015. Pentecost is Easter actualized in the church; Pentecost makes the resurrection power of the New Creation available to us. The Holy Spirit makes real to us all the realities and benefits of life with God in the present. Living by the power of the Spirit, participating in the Kingdom of God, enduring hardship and suffering is the beginning of our own cure. We can experience the eternal kind of life now, in the midst of our real and ordinary lives.


God, of your goodness give me yourself, for you are enough for me, and I can ask for nothing which is less which can pay you full worship. And if I ask for anything which is less, always I am in want; but only in you do I have everything. Julian of Norwich
