Leading worship for 1st Presbyterian Barre VT

(EDT, UTC-04) (EDT, UTC-04)

First Presbyterian Church, 19 Seminary Street , Barre

TITLE: Pentecost

DESCRIPTION: The theme of the service this week is "Pentecost 101."

Sometimes people refer to Pentecost as the birthday of the church because it marks the moment when the apostles received direct communication with the divine. 

This direct connection, traditionally depicted as the holy spirit descending in a rush of wind and made visible as "tongues as of fire" sounds mysterious— but perhaps it's less obscure than we think.

In person and online - Zoom details can be found here: https://fpcbarre.org/worship/

This online retreat 2 hour retreat is facilitated by Christine Valters Paintner, Simon de Voil & Kenneth Steven.

DESCRIPTION: St. Columba (or Columcille as he is known in Ireland) is most famous for founding several monastic communities, including on Iona, an island that continues to be a vibrant pilgrimage destination.

Join use two days before his feast day to reflect on the Celtic call to pilgrimage, which includes leaving behind what is known and loved and the grief that evokes, for the promise of new adventures. We will dwell in that liminal space of in-between, where we contemplate what shores we need to push off from and the ways the currents of love are drawing us onward.

Through teaching, meditation, poetry, and music, we will weave together an experience of walking the threshold of our own lives through the guidance of St. Columba’s wisdom for us.
