Observing Pentecost

The more babies I’ve had and the busier our days get these observances become increasingly simple but I continue to mark them in some way, I think that’s important for our family. Observing particular holy days on our church calendar does not need to be difficult or involved. For Pentecost, May 20th this year, the babies wore their best reds (the color of this holy day) and we had a fun dessert after lunch or supper. I actually think we missed the special dessert on Sunday and observed more of Pentecost on the following Monday which is called “Whit Monday,” or “Pentecost Monday.” Two days for Pentecost because some of us need a little more time.

The week or two leading up to Pentecost we sing appropriate hymns for the season. This year, Come Holy Ghost Creator Blest. We also read about the Holy Spirit and Pentecost during our morning Bible Times.

Drive far away our wily foe,
And Your abiding peace bestow;
With You as our protecting guide,
No evil can with us abide.

Teach us to know the Father, Son,
And You, from both, as Three in One
That we Your name may ever bless
And in our lives the truth confess.

Praise we the Father and Son,
And Holy Spirit, with them One,
And may the Son on us bestow
The gifts that from the Spirit flow!
