Out of The Ashes

The evening sun gave a fiery aspect to the church’s oculus window on the eve of the Feast of Pentecost.  The next morning we celebrated the fire of the Spirit in our Eucharist worship: festival music from the choir and fanfare from brass, organ and bells.  We heard the words of the Spirit: scripture and prophecy in song and story.  The service closed with a “still small voice”: a solo cantor singing “Into thy hands I commend my spirit” accompanied by a chamber orchestra.
