This is it – the birthday of the Church! This is the day when we celebrate the very obvious and dramatic arrival of the Holy Spirit (Who was there all along, I think, but the frightened and confused followers of Jesus needed a “sign” in order to get out of their locked room), when it became clear that the message of Jesus was intended for all humanity.
This week in Sunday school and with our youth, we’ll be celebrating this feast of fire, wind, and spirit with birthday cake (it’s the birthday of the Church!), a craft or two that incorporates air and fire, and a service project to welcome back our returning college freshmen who have just completed their first year out in the world. Parents are welcome to join us!
