PENTECOST SUNDAY!
pentecost
Acts 1:8 (ESV): You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

This date, 50 days after Christ's ascension at Easter, we remember the Holy Spirit descending upon the Apostles, and subsequently into each Christian believer.  Pentecost is the birthday of the Christian Church!

Acts: 2:1-4 (ESV): When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.  And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
