Reflection Time and Prayer of the Day

Good Morning Brown Clee!

We are approaching our May half-term break and at the end of the month, on Sunday 31st May the Church celebrates the festival of Pentecost that celebrates the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus after his ascension.  This day is also called Whit Sunday – and is often referred to as the birthday of the Christian Church.

The Bible describes the Holy Spirit in different ways. It speaks about the Spirit being strong like the wind, but gentle like a dove and as bright, warming and powerful as fire.

What would it have felt like to have been with the disciples in that room on that special day of Pentecost? It would have been amazing!

Prayer of the Day

Dear God,
We thank you for sending the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
Thank you that you keep your promises and can turn sadness to joy.
Amen.
