Last Sunday was Pentecost Sunday, so many of the churches were draped in red, vestments were red, and many of us were wearing red. And then. The altar guild changed the colors for this coming Sunday. The vestments were put away for another time. We changed our clothes.

Do we also put away our memories of the stories of the first Pentecost, of last Sunday, of the day the Holy Spirit first touched us, and of the many times she continues to touch us? It’s easy to do this, but let’s not. Instead, let’s be ‘People of the Pentecost,’ living our faith, feeling confidence, and speaking our truth in ways others understand.
