On-line Pentecost Service

Hosted by the Southern Interior Region
of the BC Synod of ELCIC

The leadership of the Southern Interior Region collaborated to produce an on-line worship service for Pentecost that is available on YouTube. The essence of Pentecost is embodied in this service.  There is a coming together of many communities.  A variety of languages are heard.

Here are some highlights:

  • For those that like the idea of Wild Church, you will appreciate the Thanksgiving for Baptism.
  • Anyone who is missing having a children’s story as part of worship will discover that is included.
  • Naturally, all of the hymns are from Evangelical Lutheran Worship.  The music, if not the words, will be familiar to our North Thompson congregations.  A variety of musical instruments are used.
  • The Psalm is chanted.
  • One of the scripture readings is read by a member of Trinity Shared Ministry.
  • Six pastors share in giving the sermon.
  • The Lord’s Prayer is sung to a lovely tune that will be new to many of us.

Because it has been filmed in a variety of locations, you will get a glimpse of the interiors of some of the churches in this Region.  You will also see six of the pastors and several lay people.  Perhaps those visuals will give a deeper sense of these congregations when the church names appear in the weekly prayer cycle.
