Youth Ministry Dancers at Grace United Methodist Church of Los AngelesLITURGICAL SEASON
Pentecost is the seventh season of the Christian calendar year that begins 50 days after Easter.  After Christ’s ascension into Heaven, the Apostles knew that He had promised to send His Spirit, but they didn’t know exactly what that would mean.

When the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles, It appeared as tongues of fire. Granted the gifts of the Spirit at Pentecost, the disciples were emboldened to speak the Good News to all men. On that first Pentecost Sunday, over 3,000 people were converted and baptized.

The color of the season is red. One symbol is fire that represents the Holy Spirit, who filled the apostles with enthusiasm, replacing their fear with the courage to go forth and share Christ’s story. “Tongues of fire … came to rest on each one of them.” The second symbol is the dove which also represents the Holy Spirit that descended “like a dove” and hovered over Jesus when he was baptized.


The symbols of the season of Pentecost are fire and dove.


Just because you can’t see him, doesn’t mean he’s not there.
