The Day of Pentecost
Liturgical Art Installation
Saint Luke Lutheran Church,
On this festival day, worshipers entered the sanctuary passing near the Baptismal font space, marked by The Spirit;
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love. Alleluia. (Antiphon)
Let the name of the Lord be praised, both now and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets
the name of the Lord is to be praised. Ps. 113
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues. Acts 2:4
The chancel Holy Spirit-flames were made from regular hardware store screening that was spray-painted orange, red and gold, for a warm glowing effect. Cut paper flame details were also glued on the outside of various multi-sized screen cylinders.
As an affirmation of faith and testimony to The Spirit, worshipers tied red ribbons on the St. Luke's Church fence, outside.
The Spirit of the Lord fills the world! Alleluia! Alleluia!
