This Sunday, June 4, 2017 is the Feast of Pentecost. We will celebrate this feast day at Living Word.
Please remember to wear red to mark the occasion.
Why do we wear red on Pentecost?
On the Feast of Pentecost in the church year, fifty days of Easter and ten days after the Ascension, the clergy wear red vestments to signify the work of the Spirit, which came upon the disciples as tongues of fire. It is also a custom in many churches for the people in the congregation to wear red on the Feast of Pentecost as well. We wear red to remind us of the fire of the Spirit.
In addition, a congregation with many dressed in red is colorful.
And perhaps most of all, it is fun.
Please remember to wear your red this Sunday!
