The Violent Wind Breath of God

Post by Pastor Stephen:

This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday! Wear red clothes and bring your copy of Bread for the Day. Both will help with worship and aid your role in the work we do together.

There are two stories we’ll hear from the bible about the gift of the Holy Spirit to the church. First is the story in Acts including the rush of the violent wind and the tongues of fire (thus the red in our paraments and your wardrobe). Second is the story from John as the risen Christ shares his peace and Spirit with his disciples.

It’s all about the Spirit on Pentecost. Feel free to brush up on your catechism studies. Luther’s explanation to the Third Article of the Creed is most helpful. Send a video of you reading/reciting Luther’s explanation of the Third Article to pastorstephen@lcrmarietta.org and I’ll treat you to a cup of coffee.
