The Holy Spirit was in full sight on May 23, which was Pentecost Sunday. The congregation celebrated by wearing red to commemorate the liturgical color of the day. The choir began the service with the anthem Spirit of the Living God, and later sang Every Time I Feel the Spirit at the Offertory. All the music Sam prepared was great! We brought out our “dove” and “flame” kites which symbolized the Holy Spirit zooming into the presence of the gathered disciples. Bobo Morgan once again hung our gigantic Pentecost banners from the front of the church. After the service, we released red balloons into the sky, as we recalled the Spirit’s guidance as we all go out to spread God’s love into the world. It was a fantastic day!
