Pentecost - May 24

The day of Pentecost recalls God's gift of the Holy Spirit to all people. God can cross any human boundary: language, religion, political borders. And God does so, because God's vision for humanity is greater than our limits.

On and after that first Pentecost, the Holy Spirit brought forth amazing gifts: speaking in tongues, repentance and baptism, sharing of wealth, and the building of a new community that would eventually be called "church." In celebration of that day and of the many saints who have been part of this great assembly, we wear red or another bright color. Rev. Hans Arnesen will precah and preside at a service of Holy Communion.

Come! Receive the gifts of God!
