Pentecost derives its name from the Jewish festival celebrating the harvest and the giving of the law on Mount Sinai fifty days after Passover. Fifty days after Easter, we celebrate the Holy Spirit as God’s presence within and among us. In Acts the Spirit arrives in rushing wind and flame, bringing God’s presence to all people. Paul reminds us that though we each have different capacities, we are unified in the Spirit that equips us with these gifts. Jesus breathes the Holy Spirit on his disciples, empowering them to forgive sin. We celebrate that we too are given the breath of the Holy Spirit and sent out to proclaim God’s redeeming love to all the world.
No worship services at the Luther Church this Sunday.
There is an Open Church for prayer and meditation from 10:00 to 14:00.
Be sure to wear red and join us to celebrate the presence of the Holy Spirit in the world at ACB online worship.
We need you to be part of leading worship, reading a lesson, giving the kids time, supplying flowers! Please call the office or Pastor Mari today.
