CELEBRATE PENTECOST AND THE COMING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!
The Day When God Made Church: A Child’s First Book About Pentecost
Pentecost, the Church’s birthday, is an often-overlooked holiday. This book celebrates the miraculous events that occurred on Pentecost and the ways in which the Holy Spirit shaped and continues to shape who we are as God’s Church. Children will learn the story of Pentecost: the sights, the sounds, and the people that began the community of the Church. They will discover who the Holy Spirit is and how God calls each of us to follow Jesus. Parents, educators, and ministers can discover new ways to celebrate Pentecost with children in their churches and families.
40 Days with the Holy Spirit (by Jack Levison) will inspire you to encounter God in fresh and surprising ways. You’ll develop stronger spiritual muscles as you breathe, read, reflect, and pray—all with an eye to cultivating a relationship with the least familiar member of the Trinity. The book is interactive, offering the opportunity to write and pray each day; intelligent, rooted in a rigorous study of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation; and inviting, with 40 insightful, well-planned 20—30 minute daily exercises; and prayerful, with 40 original prayers that capture each day’s insight into the deep, spiritual work of the Holy Spirit.
Perfect for Mother’s Day!
A BEAUTIFUL RECORDING FOR THE SEASON
Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola presents the Chants of the Holy Spirit
The disciples waiting in the Upper Room, the rush of wind, the tongues of fire, and the spreading of the Gospel are all depicted in these Gregorian chants from two masses for the Feast of Pentecost. Opening and closing with the traditional tolling of the Angelus bell, this SACD also features a reading of the Pentecost story from the book of Acts, and Guillaume Dufay’s Veni Creator Spiritus. “Three of the finest chant CDs have been released by Gloriae Dei Cantores: The Chants of Angels, The Chants of Mary and The Chants of the Holy Spirit. Put a Gloriae Dei Cantores’ SACD on your surround sound stereo and be transported to a timeless place of eternal beauty.”
