Pentecost Party

Pentecost is my favorite day of the liturgical year. It marks the birthday of the church and reminds us all of our confirmation. It is the day the Holy Spirit came down on to the apostles and they went forth, with a fire in their bellies proclaiming the good news of the Lord.

This year I started a new tradition: a Pentecost party! We celebrated it by eating red foods and drinking red drinks. Our menu included garlic pork chops with a wine pan sauce, pickled radishes, and some dainty pasta. To drink we had cherry 7-up, and our dessert were red velvet whoopie pies.


Perhaps the meal wasn't the healthiest, but we had fun with it!

My favorite Holy Spirit Song:

Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit
Come with your fire
Holy Spirit come with your fire
Come Holy Spirit, let your fire fall, 
Let your fire fall 

Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit
Purify my heart
Holy Spirit purify my heart
Come Holy Spirit, let your fire fall
Let your fire fall
Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit
Set my life on fire
Holy Spirit set my life on fire
Come Holy Spirit, let your fire fall
Let your fire fall
