Call it a whim. Call it a wish. Call it Whitsunday.
Today is Whitsunday, also known as Pentecost. It’s a moment Jesus promised us in John 14. Traditionally, this is the Sunday that falls 50 days after Easter. It’s a birthday celebration of sorts, marking the Holy Spirit’s descent in Acts 2 as well as marking the end of the Easter season. For those who celebrate the church seasons, it’s a transition from Easter Season to Ordinary Time.
The Holy Spirit descends and we are companioned anew. Change happens and with change, comes the choice for joy. So today, like every single day, we are offered a fresh start. A new move of the Spirit.
I’m celebrating and remembering Pentecost by moving forward in Joy.
What way will you celebrate the wonder of Holy Spirit this day?
