Although we receive the life of the Spirit through the Sacraments of Initiation – Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist, many of us need to fan this spark of life into flames. The Seminar invites us to gather and prepare for a very personal “Pentecost,” a new release or revitalisation of the Spirit’s presence.”  It includes speakers, scripture, music, prayer and small groups. Currently there is a seminar running at Church of Divine Mercy, Lekki and one of our members, NicoleCode has kindly shared her experience of the sessions with us! Yay! The Seminar encourages participants to use Scripture as a significant resource for growing in our understanding and love of God. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit want to reveal themselves to us during the weeks of the course. It is for this reason that we should become dedicated to reading and meditating upon the assigned Scriptures and Catechism passages. We encourage you to begin to pray with these Scripture passages from the course, which Nicole will share and we hope these reflections bless and inspire you to open your heart to the Holy Spirit and deepen your individual relationship with God through Jesus, the Christ.
