Day of Pentecost
 
Focus Scriptures: 
Acts 2:1-21
John 7:37-39
 

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 united 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. (Sundays & Seasons, 2020)

"God's Creating Spirit"

“When you send forth your spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the ground.” Psalm 104:30. The psalmist recognizes that God creates using God’s Spirit. In the first creation story in the book of Genesis God creates by sending a wind to sweep over the face of the waters. The Spirit acts as God’s hand reaching out, shaping and molding something new and bringing life. The psalmist is letting God know that God’s creative Spirit is seen in the world. When God sends God’s Spirit out life is created and renewed. We have just seen the changes that the season of Spring brings to earth. Green grass slowly replaces brown, daffodils open up, birds can be seen and heard repopulating backyard feeders, and warmer temperatures heal what winter’s cold left dry and cracked. God constantly renews the ground, the foundation of creation. We are witnesses to that renewal and goodness when God’s Spirit touches the earth. The psalmist sings of that creation beauty that he sees in his time and that we still see in ours. Prayer: “Creator God, we are joyful witnesses to Your renewing work in creation every Spring. We give thanks for the end of one season and the beginning of another. May we always look for and appreciate Your wonders around us. Amen.”
