CALL TO WORSHIP Leader: God’s Spirit has been poured upon all flesh. That Spirit rests upon us like flames of fire, People: That we may be light in the world’s darkness, and warmth in the world’s coldness. Leader: The Spirit has been poured upon us like a mighty wind, refreshing us in love and renewing us in strength. People: And leading us to serve in love. The Spirit has been poured upon us! All: Let us worship God! PRAYER OF PRAISE God of love and hope and peace, on this Pentecost Sunday we praise you for the gift of your Holy Spirit which comes upon all your people. Open us to the power of the Holy Spirit, that the boldness of your Spirit would transform us, that the gentleness of your Spirit would lead us, that the gifts of your Spirit would be our strength, now and always. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen. HYMN Spirit (refrain) Spirit, spirit of gentleness, blow through the wilderness, calling and free,Spirit, spirit of restlessness, stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea. You moved on the waters, you called to the deep,then you coaxed up the mountains from the valleys of sleep;and over the eons you called to each thing;“Awake from your slumbers and rise on your wings.” You swept through the desert, you stung with the sandand you goaded your people with a law and a land;and when they were blinded with idols and lies,then you spoke through your prophets to open their eyes. (refrain) You sang in a stable, you cried from a hill,then you whispered in silence when the whole world was still;and down in the city you called once again,when you blew through your people on the rush of the wind. You call from tomorrow, you break ancient schemes.From the bondage of sorrow all the captives dream dreams;our women see visions, our men clear their eyes.With bold new decisions your people arise. (refrain) PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION Spirit of the Living God Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on meMelt me, mold me, fill me, use me. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me. OLD TESTAMENT LESSON Joel 2:28-29 NEW TESTAMENT LESSON Acts 2:1-12 SERMON What Does This Mean?
