On Sunday the church celebrated Pentecost, the day we remember the coming of the Holy Spirit. Pentecost is often thought of as the birthday of the church as it was the Holy Spirit that gave the first disciples boldness and courage to start sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and thus begin the life of the church.
At St Paul's I encouraged everyone to wear something red, the colour most commonly associated with Pentecost. Here is a photo of some of our congregation at the start of the service in their red outfits.
Mindful that the work of the Holy Spirit is not limited to one Sunday a year in the church calendar we began an 8 week sermon series on the Gifts of the Spirit. Our hope is to discover the gifts God has given each one of us for the building up of His body, the church.
