June 4, 2017. In the Gospel of John we don’t hear about hundreds or thousands of people being converted all at once. Instead, we hear how the Spirit can work one person at a time. Pastor Keith’s sermon today is about how we can open our doors and let go of grudges so that the Spirit can work through us, individually and in small groups, sharing the peace of Jesus.
