The Day of Pentecost At-Home Service for May 31

The Day of Pentecost is Sunday, May 31.  On this momentous day, we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit in the form of what seemed to be tongues of fire that came to rest on each of Jesus’ disciples. The Holy Spirit enabled the disciples to speak languages other than their own so they could go out into the world to tell everyone about Jesus. This is the reason Pentecost is also considered the birth of the Church. 

Pentecost was more than an historical event. Those manifestations of the Spirit continue today! Whenever the diversity of gifts and abilities that God has poured out upon different people are brought together to work in concert with others a symphony of praise results in praise to God through Christ Jesus.  That coming together of gifts and abilities provides a glimpse into the remaking of humanity and a world made new through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
