Trouble in the Marketplace

Speakers:Rev. Dr. Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Holy communion, Sermon, Sunday service

Through the season of Easter we are looking at passages from Acts where the Holy Spirit is acting.  In today’s story, Paul and Silas encounter a slave girl who is inhabited by a spirit of divination and is being used by her owners to make money.  When Paul rids her of that spirit, the owners have Paul and Silas arrested, beaten, and imprisoned.  It is a difficult story, but through its course, several people become believers.   (NOTE:  Although the video begins with the Communion Meditation, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
