ON PENTECOST WE WEAR RED!

INVITE SOMEONE to join you this Sunday to hear Pastor Brian give a pentecost message titled "We are All Together" based on Acts 2:1-12.

Pastor Brian's Liturgics Corner

This Sunday we will be celebrating Pentecost. This Sunday is the final Sunday of the Eastertide season. Following Sunday, we will enter into the season of Ordinary Time (more on this next week). The Day of Pentecost is an occasion for recapitulation. And no New Testament passage so fully summarizes the nature of the church in the power of the Spirit as does Acts 2:1-21

The Holy Spirit is the agent whereby the Risen Christ is made present to the church. The Day of Pentecost does not mark the beginning of the Holy Spirit's work in the world. The Holy Spirit is ever active in creation. What is "new" about Pentecost is that this same Spirit who has worked in many ways now constitutes the church of God (Stookey, Calendar, pg. 73).

Why do we wear red on Pentecost? The main sign of Pentecost in the West is red. It symbolizes joy and the fire of the Holy Spirit. Pastors and worship participants often wear red to match the altar vestments for this day. This custom in modern times has extended to laity, who participate by wearing red outfits as well.

Join us on June 14th as we host our first summer Free Family Movie Night. We need church members to attend to help serve snacks and drinks and welcome and talk to the community members coming to see the movie!
