THE GLEANINGS

Today is Shavuot, the Festival (or Feast) of Weeks in the Jewish calendar. It marks the harvest of wheat, and it commemorates the day God gave the Torah to Israel. It is known as Pentecost to the Hellenic Jews. On this day, according to Christian scripture, while the apostles of Jesus were in Jerusalem celebrating Shavuot, the Holy Spirit descended upon them. For both Christians and Jews, Shavuot is emblematic of God’s message of generosity and love to all. Join us for a fun-filled worship experience for all ages. The Chalice Choir will be singing.
