Yr 5 – What is Pentecost and what does it mean to us?

06 June, 2019

Acts 2:1-5

The Coming of the Holy Spirit

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a noise came from heaven. It sounded like a strong wind blowing. This noise filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw something that looked like flames of fire. The flames were separated and stood over each person there. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak different languages. The Holy Spirit was giving them the power to do this.

There were some godly Jews in Jerusalem at this time. They were from every country in the world.

Today we discussed what Pentecost means to us and how our thinking is different from others.

We put ourselves into the shoes of the disciples and made a Y chart about how they might have felt being there.
