Trinity Church Welcomes All through its "Big Red Doors" with Tibetan prayer flags flying in the wind. It would be hard to find a more diverse group of believers, used-to-be believers, and sort-of believers. Many of us were born into other religions and denominations, and have found ourselves to be part of the inclusiveness of God's love.
The word Pentecost means fiftieth day. In most Christian traditions, Pentecost Sunday occurs 50 days following Easter Sunday (counting Easter Sunday, since it is the first day of the week). Those 50 days span seven Sundays after Easter, so Pentecost is the seventh Sunday after Easter (7 weeks times 7 days = 49 days, plus Pentecost Sunday).
Green vestments and coverings begin to make an appearance and the green leaves of the summer to show that God's divine breath comes to renew all creation.
Blessed art You O Christ Our God You have revealed the fishermen as most wise By sending down upon them the Holy Spirit Through them You drew the world into Your net O Lover of Humanity, Glory to You! (Troparion -Tone 8)
O Heavenly One, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, Who is everywhere present and filling all things, Treasury of Blessings, and Giver of life: come and abide with us, and cleanse us from every sin, and heal us, O Good One! Amen.
Fire-borne God, before the violence of your passion no separating wall can stand: may your unseen Spirit pour herself upon young and old, male and female, gay and straight, throw our borders into confusion and give us a new language of love; through Jesus Christ, the Image of God’s Being. Amen.
When the Most High came down and confounded tongues of men at Babel, He divided the nations. When He dispensed the tongues of fire, He called all to unity, and with one voice we glorify the Most Holy Spirit. (Kontakion-Plagal Tone Four)
(any place of suffering versus a final destination)
O Almighty Master, God of our fathers, Lord of mercy and Creator of all the races of men, the living and the dead, and of all nature, animate and inanimate, Who appeared and resided here on earth and again departed into the other world, Who settest the years for the living and appointest the time for the dead, Who bringest down to Hades and raisest to bliss; who bindest with weakness and loosest with power; Who arrangest the present as is meet and Who directest the future towards usefulness, Hear us, disconsolate and wretched, who beseech Thee, and give rest unto the souls who have formerly departed, and make them to repose in a resplendent place, a place of verdure and coolness, where there are no ills nor sorrow nor sighs. And array their souls in the tabernacles of the righteous, and make them worthy of peace and repose; for it is not the dead who praise Thee, O Lord, nor do those who are in Hades venture to offer unto Thee confession, but we, the living, do bless Thee and supplicate Thee, O Lord, and offer unto Thee prayers of purification and sacrifices for their souls' sake. (Orthodox Knelling Prayers)
