On Fire! Pentecost Worship

On Fire! Pentecost Worship

Renowned church music and worship director Marcia McFee says the metaphor of a church on fire is a good one for the day of Pentecost, which begins for Christians on Pentecost SundayMay 15.

“Pentecost Sunday represents an ending as well as a beginning: the end of the “Great Fifty Days” of the Easter Season (Pentecost means “the 50th day” in Greek) and the beginning of the commemorations of the early church,” Marcia writes. “Pentecost also gives us an opportunity to ask ourselves the question, ‘What is our community ‘on fire’ about?’

“Whatever you do to focus worshipers on the movement of the Spirit in our midst,” she advises, “remember the question: What is stirring within us? What is our passion for ministry? What sets us ablaze (or at least warms our hearts)?” As usual, Marcia offers a sensual feast of inspiring ideas and information to help you kindle your church’s spirit on this Pentecost Sunday.
