The Power of Words
From Season: "Kingdomtide"
Kingdomtide begins on Labor Day Sunday until the beginning of Advent, which is the Sunday closest to November 30th. Because Pentecost is traditionally so short (one Sunday), and Kingdomtide is so long, we prefer to stay in the season of Pentecost (red) until Labor Day Sunday, giving more time to emphasize the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit and to enjoy the spiritual lift from the liturgical color red for a few more weeks. Kingdomtide is a period of time when we as Christians share our faith with others, when we renew and reaffirm our own faith, and do the Lord’s work in our church, community, and our homes under the power bestowed by the descent of the Holy Spirit, which lives in us.
