Pentecost Sunday is the birthday of the Church, the day the Holy Spirit filled the first followers of Jesus with fire, and then sent them out into the world to fill the world with their unstoppable Spirit.
As the biblical account tells us in Acts 2:1-21, flames descended but did not burn them. They were filled with a Spirit that could not be turned and could not be quenched, and they changed the world.
It is traditional to wear red on this Pentecost. Please come and wear your red. Come be a part of a wonderful baptism of an infant, hear the Word spoken to us, and then celebrate once again at the Holy Table.
Fill the world with your flame. Come.
