On Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We give thanks for the way the Spirit moves in and through us–and even in spite of us! This is timely as we seek to live as people of faith during a divisive, charged, and challenging time. Our hurting world needs the healing power of God’s love more than ever. We pray the Holy Spirit will open our minds and our hearts to love one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. We are all children of God.
When we gather on this Sunday, we typically wear the color red which is the liturgical color for Pentecost. You are welcome to wear red and watch our service. During worship, you will get to take a walk around and bless the St. Mark Community Garden. You will sit with me around an evening campfire. Eric will take you to the roof with the Paraclete. And, you will sing with the “Band” in our spirit-filled sanctuary.
