This Sunday will mark Pentecost Sunday. It is the end of the
Easter Season. I know any day now Hobby
Lobby will be full of Christmas trees, but it really is still the Easter
Season. Why I point that out is that
Pentecost is part of the Easter story.
Without following the story line through to Pentecost we are left
wondering what happened to those scared disciples. It’s a rather uninspiring end to the story
isn’t it? Well of course it isn’t the
end of the biblical storyline.
There will be a meal shared together. There will be a cake. Something like this with candles to represent the flames, strawberries representing the gifts and fruits of the Spirit.
Just like on our kids’ birthdays when we tell them again the story of their birth, we will tell the biblical story of the church’s birth from Acts 2.
