Pentecost is the day we commemorate the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles. It marks the beginning of the Christian church and the proclamation of its message throughout the world. It is often referred to as the birthday of the church. The liturgical color for Pentecost is red.
May 31, 2020 is Pentecost Sunday. Please consider participating in the Pentecost celebration in one or more of the following ways.
*Decorate your house or yard with something red for a scavenger hunt. Use a heart, balloons, flowers, a poster, etc. It doesn’t have to be big but it should be visible from the road. You may want to include the cross and flame (see below). Make sure your decorations are up by Sunday and plan to leave them up for at least one week. Post your address on Yellow Steeple (and phone number if you want to) or contact me (Jill Escriva firstname.lastname@example.org ) and I will post it for you.
*Take part in the scavenger hunt. Anytime during the week, go to the addresses found on Yellow Steeple. Keep yourself safe! Pull off the road or into the driveway. Keep socially distant. Take a picture of what you have found or a picture of you in front of the house. Post your photos on Yellow Steeple. You may also want to honk your horn or call the church member whose house you are visiting.
We may not be able to be together for Pentecost this year, but we can still celebrate together.
