This Sunday we will celebrate Pentecost

This post was originally published on TheCity

Pentecost commemorates an important event in Christian history. It many ways, Pentecost is the birthday of the church.  Pentecost is the 50th day after Easter.  It is a holiday on which we commemorate the coming of the Holy Spirit on the early followers of Jesus. The English word “Pentecost” is a transliteration of the Greek word pentekostos, which means “fifty.” It comes from the ancient Christian expression pentekoste hemera, which means “fiftieth day.”  Pentecost is recorded in Acts 2.  This is the day the Holy Spirit filled the followers of Jesus.  Peter spoke to the crowd (his first sermon) and 3000 were added to the church that day.

Our paraments will change colors this weekend.  The white will be gone and the red Pentecostal paraments will replace them.  Take a close look at them.  The designers, Peg Kotecki and Deb Herman, depicted the movement of the Holy Spirit in their design.


Wear Red!
