“Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting [and] they saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.” Acts 2:3-4 (NIV)
This Sunday is traditionally celebrated as Pentecost Sunday, coming 50 days after Easter and commemorating the coming of the Holy Spirit to the followers of Jesus following his resurrection and ascension.
Pentecost is often celebrated as the “birthday of the church,” and is a major touchstone in trinitarian theology. But what do we know of the deeper Jewish history of Pentecost, its meanings prior to Christianity, and how those things translate into our faith traditions today?
This Sunday at New Wineskins, we’ll focus on our friend the Holy Spirit as we celebrate Pentecost together! Join us in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company!
