Day of Pentecost
PENTECOST – This is a significant point in the Christian liturgical calendar. It is because of Pentecost that we can claim that our Christian Gospel is about living fully here and now. It is because of Pentecost that we can claim that the Reign of God is here within us and that we are called to be Disciple leaders into the world. If our faith stopped with the Resurrection of Jesus then we would be a Church that worshiped a historic event only, while waiting passively for the External Christ to come on down from the sky on a cloud. But our faith, while certainly embracing the Risen Christ goes a significant step further. We believe in the Holy Spirit of God that was sent to reside in the hearts/souls of each person – the Sacred within us. Because of our understanding & experience of the Historic Jesus and the Risen Lord, we are blessed with a fuller understand the Spirit Within. So our task in embracing our Christian faith is not one dimensional – i.e. followers of Jesus. Rather our task as Christians is embracing Jesus, embracing the God of Creation & History, and embracing the Holy Spirit all three as manifestations of the One, Universal God.
