Why do we wear red for Pentecost?

Why has it been a tradition to wear red on Pentecost Sunday? Red is the color of passion and fire. Pentecost Red is about you and me living our lives out loud - living out loud the Love of God who is freedom, who is acceptance, who is peace. If you've got red - wear it this Sunday. And be bold about Love. 

 

On this 75th Anniversary of D-Day, we remember and give thanks for all those who have served our country, in times of peace and in times of war. Seventy five years ago President Roosevelt ended his prayer for the WWII storming of the beaches of Normandy with these words: "Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogance. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace, a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all men live in freedom, reaping the just reward of their honest toil. Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen." 

 

May the Peace of the Lord be yours,

Pastor Linda+
