Did you know that the word “Pentecost” means “50” ? Pentecost Sunday is the 50th day after Easter. On this day, we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit and the beginning of the church.
This playlist includes opportunities to explore & learn about Pentecost.
Read & Wonder...
I wonder what it was like in that room to see little flames of fire above everyone’s heads.
I wonder what it sounded like when everyone was speaking different languages all at the same time.
I wonder how the people felt when they left the room that day.
For youth & adults:
What would it have felt like to be one of the disciples in this story?
What do you think it means to be filled with the Holy Spirit?
How do you see the Holy Spirit at work in and through you?

A Breath Prayer is a way of praying through deep, intentional breathing. In this calming and meditative practice, we can feel the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. To pray, choose a brief phrase to repeat as you breathe in and out slowly.
Try these: (or create your own)
“Holy Spirit” (breathe in) “guide me” (breathe out)
“Holy Spirit” (breathe in) “fill me” (breathe out)
“Come”(breathe in) “Holy Spirit” (breathe out)
“Create in me” (breathe in) “a clean heart” (breathe out)
