there are three very significant festivals that happen in the church calendar . . .
one . . . Christmas, the gift of God's one and only son, who came to earth.
two . . . Easter, Christ's powerful triumph over sin and death.
three . . . Pentecost, the gift of the Holy Spirit, which gives us faith to believe and trust in Christ as our Saviour.
so . . . to help my church celebrate this festival, a group of us collaborated on a sketch that I had done (over 23 years ago).
A huge shout out goes to Craig, who helped build the structure. Ingrid for cutting the fabric. And to Matt, our Minister of Worship Arts who did most of the construction of the art piece. Thanks Matt for letting me "cut-loose" with all of my creative energy and crazy ideas.
Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
