Pentecost: The language of love

Pentecost: The language of love

Things were happening to the disciples in that period six weeks after Easter … having just grown accustomed to Christ being back with them, he leaves them again in circumstances that must have been difficult to understand. Then, just ten days later, their world is once more blown apart as the Holy Spirit arrives, and energises them into action. Talk about operating out of their comfort zone!

That Pentecost experience of the apostles led to a new form of ministry for them, and to an explosive growth in the number of followers of Christ, so it’s no surprise that Pentecost is often thought of as being the birthday of the Church.

At this time of new beginnings, we rejoice with our curate, Rev Valerie Walker, as she starts a new phase of her service by being ordained Priest on 3 June.

Every week in our Eucharist we pray: “send your Holy Spirit upon us … that we may be kindled with the fire of your love and renewed for the service of your Kingdom.” May that be our special prayer as we join in worship this month.
