Stork Central 1,114 Posted May 23, 2007 Report Share Posted May 23, 2007 This Sunday is when Christians worldwide remember Pentecost, often considered the "birthday of the Church." It commemorates a time following the Resurrection, when Jewish followers of Christ who had gathered for the "Feast of Weeks" were suddenly, miraculously! empowered by the gift of the Holy Spirit to transcend the limitations of race and language and culture, for the glory of God. (Read more about it, here.) Often, Christians wear red clothing to church on Pentecost, to symbolize flames, and worship on that Sunday is an energizing event, "firing up" congregations and renewing their faith and commitment after the rollercoaster emotions of Lent and Easter. But Pentecost isn't just for churchgoers, anymore! (As if it ever were. ) Let's explore the many possible ways and means by which each of us can re-energize ourselves, spiritually, wherever we are in our personal journeys; whether we are thinking about adoption, waiting to match, recovering from placement, or parenting/grandparenting. What do you need to do, to renew your inner spirit and to catch a fresh wave of enthusiasm about your own life and your personal relationship with your Creator?
