Welcome to our 12-minute "Gift of Pentecost," with song, scripture, and a trip around the world you'll not soon forget. After our volunteers read the Acts 2:1-2 scripture about the birth of the church at Pentecost, we'll begin our trip around the world, with multiple generations of readers in 17 world languages reminding us of Jesus' Great Commandment (John 13:34-35), "A new commandment I give to you: Love one another."
DisciplesNet celebrates its second anniversary by receiving a special guest to bring you our message, looking at three special visions, or discernments to bring us closer to God, that we can find at the table.
We are humbled and so grateful that Rev. Dr. Sharon Watkins, the General Minister and President of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada, took time from her extraordinarily busy schedule to give this message to our DisciplesNet family. This was filmed in the chapel at Disciples Center headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
Our worship includes a time of communion (breaking of the bread)--for which we extend the invitation given by Jesus Christ to all who would come.

If you are unable to eat or drink, use a symbolic gesture or mental symbols of joining with us. Continue reading →
Choose You Tube or Vimeo, and join us in hearing John 13:34-35 in a read by 15 people from around the world. We released this video last year at the time of Pentecost, and have done a little more work to it. That one language of love continues to speak to us at the time of Pentecost, as well as all times. We hope you or the group you are with will be blessed by this 11 minute time of devotion and inspiration. If you like, please sing along with the song. --your friends at DisciplesNet Church
