Today is Pentecost Sunday.

Pentecost (Greek: Πεντηκοστή [Pentēkostē] means “the fiftieth [day]”) is the fiftieth and last day of the Easter season. This morning’s service celebrates the sending of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ, as described in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1–31. We also recognize it as the “Birthday of the Church”.

It was lovely to see the altar decoration – especially our lightbox cross – set up for today’s celebrations. Special thanks goes to Mei Li for helping us with this.

Drawing from this week’s lectionary readings, Pastor Augustin’s sermon today reflected on four symbols used in the Bible for the Holy Spirit: Oil, Water, Wind and Fire. Each symbol represented the way the Holy Spirit worked in the lives of believers.

May the unceasing faithfulness of God finish His work in us through the power of the Holy Spirit.
