Pope’s Francis Message also for Evangelicals

In an address to mark Pentecost Sunday attended by more than 200, 000 people, Pope Francis warned the Roman Catholic Church “to not close on itself…, urging the faithful to be open and present in a new and changing world.”

Newness always makes us a bit fearful, because we feel more secure if we have everything under control,” Francis said in his homily in front of a packed St. Peter’s Square, adding that change can bring fulfillment.  (emphasis added, read entire post here)

Yes, given the significant of Pentecost in redemptive history, marking the descent on the Holy Spirit to empower the church to be witnesses in an ever-changing world, what the Pope has to say should be heeded even by evangelicals.
