The Feast of Pentecost

Whitsunday

June 4, 2017

On Sunday, Mother Maxine Barnett, Curate at The Church of St. Jude (Episcopal) in Wantagh, NY explains that language is extremely important in our lives. Sometimes, even when people speak to us in our own language, we have difficulty understanding what they’re saying. Language often defines community, and, today’s Pentecost Bible reading is a story of community. Jesus tells the gathering of his Disciples in the Upper Room that he will send the Holy Spirit. On that day of Pentecost, Jews from all over who spoke different languages gathered together. The Disciples were able to speak to the people gathered and be understood in each of the people’s languages so that they could hear the Good News of what God has done for them.
