God of wind, word and fire breathes the gift of the Holy Spirit into us this Sunday of Pentecost at University Circle United Methodist Church (UCUMC). Beginning at 11am, Dr. Chalker will teach us the meaning of Pentecost, past and present. And a quartet from the Chancel Choir including Lydia Hall, David Hughes, Pam Maly and Rich Schmidt will provide musical inspiration during the service.
