This is the Day of Pentecost. This is considered the Birthday of the Church as the Holy Spirit descended on the early followers of Jesus in Acts 2:1-21. The early followers were empowered to live the lives Jesus had given them. Below is a couple of links produced today by the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario and the National Church. I hope you are keeping well.
