All about Pentecost
The word 'Pentecost' comes from the Greek; it simply means 'fiftieth'. Pentecost Sunday ends the season of Easter; it is the sabbath day after a week's worth of weeks. But did you know that originally Pentecost grew from what was originally a festival marking the first grain harvest of the Middle Eastern year, marked by a sacrifice to the gods from the first part of that first harvest? Read All About Pentecost in this feature by Robert Longman Jr.
The School of the Holy Spirit
In this 8-part feature, The School of the Holy Spirit, Aneel Aranha uses his own experiences to show you how the Holy Spirit works. With down-to-earth advice combined with frank and touching admissions of his own failures and trials, this is a must read for all those who seek a more intimate knowledge of the working of the Holy Spirit.
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit
The revelation of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit is rooted in the prophecy of Isaiah about the coming Messiah: "But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, a spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord, and his delight shall be the fear of the Lord" (Isaiah 11:1-3) Fr. William Saunders tells you all what these gifts are and how they impact our lives as Christians.
Unite the Church
On the Pentecost after Jesusí resurrection, Mary, the mother of Jesus, the eleven apostles and other believers were gathered together in one place, when they were suddenly empowered by the Holy Spirit to spread the gospel and build the church of God. This year, let us use this sacred time to rebuild the church that has been severely fragmented since that time 2000 years ago. Holy Spirit Interactive invites all of you to pray to Unite the Church of God this Pentecost.
