FIRE Speaker Dr. Rose Payan – Sunday, April 23rd

Dr. Rose Payan The Power of the Holy Spirit: Healing and Forgiving Sunday, April 23rd at 10:30 AM in Geary Hall Have our gifts been collecting dust? Do we have gifts that are not realized or opened, because we don't know how to open them or use them? The Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles at Pentecost and gave them power, courage and willingness to open unlocked doors and proclaim the Good News. We received the Holy Spirit at our Baptism and were sealed with the Holy Spirit at Confirmation. However, have we listened to and allowed the Holy Spirit to guide us?  The power of God, through the Holy Spirit, desires to bring healing to our lives and often healing begins with forgiveness. Come listen to Dr. Rose Payan lead us on a journey discovering the power of forgiveness and healing through the Holy Spirit. Dr. Rose holds a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction, a master's degree in Elementary Education, and a BA in Speech and Language Therapy. She works for a national educational firm and was a presenter at the annual symposium of the National Association of Diocesan Liaisons to the Charismatic Renewal where she spoke on intercessory prayer, and has provided a series of workshops for the Sacramento Diocese.
