Read the newest issue of First Press today and share with your friends and
neighbors as an invitation to visit the
church. The introductory article, written by Elder Marty Bowles Edwards set the tone for the “Connect” theme.
She writes, “How do we experience our spirit? Spirit seems to be packed into a little box, deep in our hearts,
awaiting our decision to take a peek. Something else, something exciting, something awesome is
experienced if we lift the lid and gaze inside…
When encouraged to “BE” rather than “DO” we experience the Holy Spirit’s presence
in the core of our BEing. Holy Spirit stretches and expands our world and our
awareness. The Holy Spirit connects us to all of creation and invites us to be
a part of the creative process.”
