Continue to Shout Hallelujah! 

May 1, 2012

Let’s see, April is over, which means: 1. we should be bustin’ out all over with flowers from April’s showers and 2. Easter is over so Peeps are back in their storage cases for another year and Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus for another 8 months.  Well my friends, I am here to tell you the only “flowers” bustin’ out all over in my yard are dandelions.  Peeps, although 75% off, are still on the back shelf.  And we should continue to proclaim “Hallelujah” because Easter is not over. 

The white steamers hanging in the sanctuary since Easter Sunday remind us that we are still in the liturgical season of Easter.  The season from Easter to Pentecost is also called the Great Fifty Days, a tradition inspired by the Jewish season of fifty days between Passover and Shavuot—the feast celebrating the giving of the Torah to Moses.

The liturgical color for this season is celebratory white or gold.  When the season ends on Pentecost Sunday, May 27, white will be replaced with red.  This color represents fire—the symbol of the Holy Spirit.  (Just wait, it will be really cool… or I mean hot.)

The liturgical images created for Plymouth’s sanctuary and lounge are a powerful addition to our worship experience.  If you would like to be part of this energetic group, please contact me, djacobsen@plymouthchurchseattle.org or through the church office.  The possibilities are endless!
