The Church council will review Ontario Step One information on June 15. Stay tuned. In the meantime, we know that over the centuries Christian communities have found ways to worship under much tougher conditions than we are facing today.
Pentecost comes from the Greek word pentekoste meaning “50th” (day). Pentecost is a reference to the Jewish festival Shavuot or the Festival of Weeks, which is held on the 50th day after the second day of Passover. This festival celebrates the giving of the Torah to the Israelites at Mount Sinai. In Acts 2, it is said that the disciples had gathered on the day of Pentecost, or the day of the festival of Shavuot. That’s when the wind and fire and Spirit came!
The liturgical colour is red. Red is a primary colour and a warm colour. It symbolizes fire, spirit, energy, passion, strength, power, intensity, courage, and determination. It draws to mind the flames dancing over the disciples and friends of Jesus gathered in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. While the day of Pentecost lasts only one day, the Season of Pentecost lasts all the way to Labour Day.
