Pentecost! IMG_3207
The Feast of Pentecost is the oldest feast in the Christian religion, and the only one that is a direct carry-over from the ancient form of Judaism which Jesus and his disciples practiced. The feast of Pentecost commemorates the moment when the disciples realized that God’s Holy Spirit was at work in all people, not just the 12 tribes of Israel. Pentecost is a Greek word that means “fifty,” since it always falls fifty days after Easter. It is also one of the traditional days on which the Church celebrates the sacrament of Holy Baptism, in which we invite that same Holy Spirit to inflame our hearts with zeal for God’s kingdom. Readings and hymns during this season focus on the ongoing work of developing and fostering Christian community. During this season, clergy and church are traditionally vested in green.
