To the People of God on Cape Cod,

For me, May has always been filled with memorable celebrations, not least of which were Birthday parties!  My daughter Nicole was born May 15th, my sister has a May birthday and the Christian Church celebrations a “Birthday of the Church” on Pentecost – which falls on May 19th this year.

Pentecost has traditionally caused visual impact as people remember to Wear Red.  God’s gift of presence and power is symbolized by the descent of the Holy Spirit.

Birthdays are days we look forward as we “make a wish” and blow out the candles!  We cannot change the past but we need not repeat our mistakes of the past.  We can persevere, change direction or accomplish long abandoned dreams.

Your personal birthday may fall in other months but this Pentecost we celebrate the fact that by the power of the Holy Spirit “We can persevere, change direction or accomplish long abandoned dreams,” together as the Church of Jesus Christ-to the glory of God – for our friends, our community and our World.

My wish is for the end of violence, for Peace with Justice, for Shalom – for each of us, for our national future and for the Global Community!

Pastor Dianne
