WORSHIP THIS WEEK: This Sunday, May 19, we celebrate the Day of Pentecost!  It’s a good day to WEAR RED, which is the liturgical color of the day, the color that reminds us of the power of the Holy Spirit, which comes to us as wind and fire – and sometimes as that still, small voice inside us that guides us with holy wisdom.  Join us in our physical sanctuary at 300 Shunpike Road or in our digital sanctuary for worship: https://www.youtube.com/live/gMxX6SXzmrA?si=W5h1MdY9xkub3d49
