Spirit Week: May 24-31

50 days after Easter, with a mighty rush of wind God poured out His Holy Spirit on the disciples as they were gathered in Jerusalem. The Spirit empowered them to proclaim the Good News

Spirit Week is an invitation to focus on the work of the Holy Spirit in our world today.  Throughout the week are suggestions, reflections, and reminders that the Holy Spirit works through each of us and sometimes in ways we don’t even understand.

Have fun and may the Spirit fill you with joy this week!

Pentecost Sunday:  Wear red to worship or wherever you may be.

Monday:  Light a candle and pray for the work of the Holy Spirit in the world.

Tuesday:  Thank someone for their work or who has been a faith mentor to you.

Wednesday:  Greet people using a foreign language.

Thursday:  Wear red to work or school day

Friday:  Mis-matched socks day – A reminder that we don’t always understand how the Holy Spirit works

Saturday:  Volunteer or share a gift – Go out into your community and feel the wind on your face as you serve others.

Sunday:  Attend worship giving thanks and praise to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit on this Holy Trinity Sunday.

Additional Activities:

Reflection – How is the Holy Spirit working in and through you?

  • Look in the mirror…
  • Look at a photo of you or your family…
  • Draw a picture of you and the Holy Spirit at work…

 

Invite someone over for a meal and say a prayer before you eat together.  The simple act of prayer will open the door for the Holy Spirit to work.  Samples of prayers may be found here.
