The Day of Pentecost

The Day of Pentecost

Today we mark the arrival of the Holy Spirit, the Counselor, the Comforter, an arrival which (2,000 years ago) transformed fearful and self-conscious men and women into fearless and selfless evangelists for Christ. Pentecost is, in many ways, the birthday of the Church. But it is not merely that. It is the acknowledgement and celebration of the on-going action of God in our lives, through the Spirit. To gain a richer understanding, consider these sermons: I Believe in the Holy Ghost (2011) by Fr Daniels A Sermon for the Day of Pentecost (2010) by John Polkinghorne The Holy Spirit Gives us a Future (2010) by Fr Austin From Pentecost to Pop Hale to Fifth Avenue (2009) by Fr Mead Three Points about Pentecost (2008) by Fr Mead Where the Spirit of the Lord is, There is Freedom (2006) by Fr Austin

Collect:

Almighty God, who on this day didst open the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of thy Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
