Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful. And kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And you will renew the face of the earth. During Jesus’s last days on earth, He promised His followers that “the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things” (John 14:26)
“Therefore, GO with Hope through Purpose: Growing in faith through participation in the means of grace. The focus is on spiritual depth as we follow Jesus and nurture persons in Christian living through worship, the sacraments, spiritual disciplines, and other means of grace, such as Wesley’s Christian Conferencing.”
Laity Sunday is a special Sunday defined by General Conference to "celebrate the ministry of all Christians" (2016 Book of Discipline ¶ 264.2). Traditionally observed on the third Sunday in October (this year, October 17), Laity Sunday is one way we express the deep conviction that all are called to participate in God’s mission and live this calling through the ministry of the church.
