Pentecost is the day when the Holy Spirit comes from heaven like a rushing wind. It’s full of symbolism… flame, wind, water, the dove. It’s a rich time to do fun crafts or activities as a family to celebrate this important day in the Christian year. The color of pentecost is RED.
Today, eight days into the Christmas season, the Episcopal Church celebrates the Feast of the Holy Name. We celebrate this feast day on January 1st each year because it’s the day when Jesus was named by his parents and circumcised.
Have you ever read the story of the magical place Narnia? Maybe you have even seen the film. Today, we remember C.S. Lewis, the author and storyteller who invited us into this magical world through his writing.
I must have forgotten to share my peace and joy-filled plan with the kids.
You won’t find Pentecost in the aisle at a craft supply store. But there are still simple and beautiful ways to honor this major feast at home.
