Wearing red today for Pentecost

from w
It was great to see so many women, children, men attempt to wear red today at church for Pentecost. The decorations of streamers, the banners, flowers, kids whirling red streamers - there was bright colour and smiles everywhere. Even the minister had put pinkish dye in his hair. It was a lovely morning which included a confirmation of an elderly woman, and induction of two new elders. I mucked up the first song by stopping early - but perhaps there is a kind of chaos about pentecost anyway! By the final song, a new one, we galloped along in a kind of rocky rhythm and all was well with the world. Except...for the Fiji news concerning the military government and the Methodist Church there.
