The Festival of Pentecost — as many of us tell our Sunday School kids, it’s the “birthday of the Church.” Yet the tame flames of candles on a birthday cake are nothing like the dramatic fire and wind of the Spirit visiting the people of God in powerful and unpredictable ways.
What text(s) will you use as a thematic anchor for your sermon this coming Sunday, and why? Discuss!
And — bonus points — let us know if you’re planning any special worship elements — visual, choral, liturgical — for this important Sunday in the life of the church.
