Many Voices, One Faith
When the Holy Spirit came down upon the apostles and the church was born, in tongues of flame and words in many languages, the first followers of Jesus learned something about what the body of Christ was supposed to look and sound like. The church, from its very first breaths as an expression of God’s imagination, was chaotic and vibrant, filled with awe and wonder and mystery, with hymns of praise sung in many languages.
The feast day of Pentecost is one of our greatest celebrations. With this being Memorial Day weekend, we will begin our church-in-the-round summer setup, so we’ll be able to celebrate the coming of the holy spirit in a church arranged for us to see one another, and to see the holy in one another. We’ll hear scripture in multiple languages and celebrate the Spirit among us.
We’ll also sing in multiple voices. The music of Pentecost at the 10 a.m. service will be a celebration of Trinity’s multiple worship expressions, led by both our Music Director Todd Wilson and by Morgan Mecaskey and The Abundant Table musicians. The service will feature hymns familiar to each congregation, allowing us to come together, as the earliest believers did, with multiple ways to sing of the same life-giving faith.
