Pentacost Sunday - Come Holy Spirit
What is Pentacost and what does it mean to you?
A feast of the universal Church which commemorates the Descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles, fifty days after the Resurrection of Christ, on the ancient Jewish festival called the "feast of weeks" or Pentecost (Exodus 34:22; Deuteronomy 16:10). Whitsunday is so called from the white garments which were worn by those who were baptised during the vigil; Pentecost ("Pfingsten" in German), is the Greek for "the fiftieth" (day after Easter).
My challenge to you this week is to do a layout that shows a tradition around Pentacost or what the Holy Spirit has meant in your life.
My LO is of my dad when he was small. The tradition in his church was to parade in white garments, young and old got together and did this. Please link your layouts back to the blog so we can leave you some loving feedback!
Peace be with each of you.
