Ah - no - the upload wouldn't.
But the link is
here


And I'm using the first part almost verbatim:

Pentecost
I’d like to use a reflection I found on the internet:

Go on admit it.
You’re wondering about the future. Maybe worrying.
Do we even have a future? Will our church survive?
Will our children have faith? Will our faith have children?
There are so many challenges.
We don’t know the people next door anymore.
Why would they want to come to our church?
People pass by. We don’t know them. No-one comes in.
They are outside. We are inside.
And so we wait and watch and worry.
But we don’t know what to do. Won’t someone come to help us?
But have you noticed there’s a story just like this in the Bible.
There are only a few left. People pass by outside. They are inside.
Waiting and watching. They don’t know what to do.
And then it happens.
Wind. Fire. Noise…
No-one came and took away their problems.
Instead the Spirit comes.


And this same Spirit can come to us. Today.
And come in bread and wine
And lead us into truth.
And the truth is – God is with us.
Thanks be to God.
Amen
