HTLoop and HTLakeview: Languages On Pentecost
Do you speak a second language? On Pentecost, May, 19/20, everyone will have the opportunity to read together in multiple languages. We’ll have Spanish, French, German, Latin, and Portugese printed in the bulletin, but if you speak another language not listed here, plan to bring a copy of the passage ( Romans 6:9-11; 1 Corinthians 15:20-22) or email Beau Surratt at email@example.com and he will get the reading to you so you can add your voice to our communal “speaking in tongues.” Everyone will be reading aloud together, so don’t be shy – let us know even if you just barely speak a language. The more languages, the better!
Don't forget to wear RED, orange, yellow, and pink to church-- colors of flame!
HTLoop (637 S. Dearborn): We'll have a (RED)flame-themed reception after the liturgy. Sign up here to bring some red/orange/yellow/pink food/drink to share. Plus, there will be a special prize for the person who best embodies the Holy Spirit in their manner of dress.
Make Prayer Flags for Pentecost: Where do we need the movement, the power, the peace, and the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in our world? Write your prayers for the Holy Spirit on the prayer flags found in the entryway and they will be displayed in our worship space for Pentecost as we pray “Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of all people, and kindle in us the fire of your love.”
Eat, Drink, Read. The next book group meeting will be Thursday, May 17 at 7:30pm at the home of Geraldine Kruse, 3940 W Bryn Mawr.
