Day of Pentecost – May 23, 2021
Elder Alan Willadsen

“BAD BREATH, BIRTHDAY CANDLES, & HOPE”

An old proverb would have us believe the more things change, the more they remain the same. Really, how different are we from our
ancestors or the people in the Bible? “What has happened will happen again, and what has been done will be done again, and there is
nothing new under the sun,” wrote the author of Ecclesiastes. We live, we breathe, we celebrate, we love, and we hope. Nothing new,
right? Yet Isaiah said, “Cease to dwell on days gone by and to brood over past history. Here and now I will do a new thing”.
What is Pentecost, but a new thing!

Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to
every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit:
Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of
the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through
Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the
unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
