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.
