News & Events

From the Pastor’s Desk

Dear Kingswood,

Conflict and conspiracy. Two words we
can easily see are relevant and prevalent in
our time. But, I don’t think we naturally go to those
words when we think of the Scriptures. However, this
week in Chapter 6 of Acts, that is just what we have!
Take some time to read it, then come back to this article.
Did you find them? What was the conflict? What
was the conspiracy? If you are like me, you don’t like
either of these. I dislike conflict and tend to be conflict
avoidant. I also don’t like conspiracy-the real
kind (evil in the shadows of jealousy), or the theory
kind (evil in the shadows of distraction)! Either way,
most people when confronted with either, struggle.
Questions like: What do we do? How should we handle
this? Where do we go? Who needs to be involved?
What is our response going to be?
For my money, I think the key question here is,
“Who needs to be involved?” And, the answer
might surprise us. So, to answer this question, I have
another question: In these verses, where is the Holy
Spirit? Once we have that answer, we have our answer,
right? So, who is it?

In Christ’s Grace & Resurrection,
Pastor Bill
