The Holy Spirit was definitely present at Pentecost celebrations at Good Shepherd! We were delighted to celebrate a Green, Growing Sunday with Bishop Jane present for confirmations, receptions, and reaffirmations. On monthly Green, Growing Sundays, children and youth take over the service and this was in evidence. They joined the opening procession with orange banners to represent the holy flame, read lessons and announcements, participated in a lively interactive sermon, and stood at the altar to watch the consecration of the elements for the eucharist. We were overjoyed on this occasion to witness the confirmation of three teens and two adults, as well as the reception and reaffirmation of three more adults. Huge thanks to all our volunteers and to the ACW for providing a yummy strawberry tea and cake after the service.
