On this Sunday we’re asking Church members to WEAR RED as a symbol of the fire of the Holy Spirit.
The Day of Pentecost is a feast day of the Church. It takes place fifty days after Easter and is the culmination of what we celebrate at the resurrection. During biblical times, on this day Jews came from all over to Jerusalem for the Festival of Weeks. It was originally an agricultural festival celebrating the spring harvest.
In Acts 2, which so many relate with Pentecost, the disciples and many other followers of Jesus are present as the room fills with sound and then wind. Jesus’ followers begin to proclaim God’s mighty acts in many different languages that all those gathered can understand. They have received what Jesus had promised—the necessary and powerful gift of the Holy Spirit. It is a dramatic event that signals a change from the early Church hiding in fear, to the Church asking for the power to speak boldly about the goodness of God that comes through Jesus the Christ (Acts 4:29).
