During the nine days between Ascension Day and Pentecost some Christians in Abingdon did something special to mark the time. (Ascension Day celebrates Jesus going to heaven and Pentecost is when the Holy Spirit came down to empower the early disciples.)
The people of Peachcroft Church took part in the Pentecost Colouring Project and made this video. The project brought together 55 different households, joining to form bigger pictures on the theme of Pentecost. The pictures can now be seen in the church windows.
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a term in the bible that sums up the nine attributes of living in accord with the Holy Spirit. The thought for the day put together by the Abingdon-on-Thames Parish over nine days featured those nine attributes.
There was a virtual prayer room Thy Kingdom Come – Abingdon (May 2020) where people signed up for every hour through the ten days leading up to Pentecost.
I got a slot at 3am on Saturday 30th May and 4am on Saturday 31st May, and took a video of a prayer candle and of the dawn on Pentecost Sunday.
