In-person worship has resumed as of Sunday, July 4, 2021. We will continue to record the audio and provide a weekly podcast here for those who are unable or unsure about attending in person.
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.
You can share our weekly podcast with a friend who’s not using a computer. Just phone your friend, put the phone in just the right position next to your computer and play the podcast over to the phone to your friend. A great way for them to stay connected. Why not give it a try?
June 27 was our final prerecorded podcast, recorded on Thursday, June 24, with post production between then and Sunday. Starting July 4, the live worship service is recorded live and then uploaded to the web site. With post production between the 10AM service and the upload, you can expect to find Sunday audio services here by 2PM.
Continuing on Sept 19, 2021 with part two of a series on renewal.
