Amen.Children’s Focus led by Teresa JohnsonThe Proclamation of the WordA READING FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS 2: 1-21 (multilingualreading)When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together inone place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like therush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where theywere sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them,and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled withthe Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spiritgave them ability. Now there were devout Jews from every nationunder heaven living in Jerusalem. And at this sound the crowdgathered and was bewildered, because each one heard themspeaking in the native language of each. Amazed and astonished,they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? Andhow is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language?Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judeaand Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egyptand the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors fromRome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs—in our ownlanguages we hear them speaking about God’s deeds of power.”All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatdoes this mean?” But others sneered and said, “They are filledwith new wine.” But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised hisvoice and addressed them, “Men of Judea and all who live inJerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say.Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nineo’clock in the morning. No, this is what was spoken through theprophet Joel: ‘In the last days it will be, God declares, that I willpour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and yourdaughters shallprophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old menshall dream dreams. Even upon my slaves, both men and women,in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shallprophesy. And I will show portents in the heaven above and signson the earth below, blood, and fire, and smoky mist. The sun shallbe turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the comingof the Lord’s great and glorious day. Then everyone who calls onthe name of the Lord shall be saved.’”The word of the Lord.Thanks be to God.PSALM 104: 25-35, 37b25O LORD how man-i-fold are your works! *in wisdom you have made them all / the earth is full of yourcreatures.26Yonder is the great and wide sea with its living things tooma-ny to num-ber, *creatures both small and great.27There move the ships and there is that Le-vi-a-than, *which you have made for the sport of it.28All of them look to you *to give them their food in due sea-son.29You give it to them they ga-ther it; *you open your hand and they are fill’d with good things.
30You hide your face and they are ter-ri-f-ied; *you take away their breath and they die and re-turn to theirdust.31You send forth your Spirit and they are cre-a-ted; *and so you renew the face of the earth.32May the glory of the LORD en-dure for e-ver; *may the LORD re-joice in all his works.33He looks at the earth and it trem-bles; *he touches the moun-tains and they smoke.34I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; *I will praise my God while I have my be-ing.35May these words of mine please him; *I will re-joice in the LORD.Glory be to the Father and to the Son:and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit.As it was in the beginning is now and e-ver shall be:world with-out end A-men.A READING FROM THE LETTER OF PAUL TO THE ROMANS 8: 14-17Read by Esma BrathwaiteFor all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. Foryou did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but youhave received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, “Abba! Father!”it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we arechildren of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of Godand joint heirs with Christ—if, in fact, we suffer with him so thatwe may also be glorified with him.The word of the Lord.Thanks be to God.Gospel Alleluia:Choir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaAll: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaCantor: Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithfuland kindle in them the fire of your love.All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaGospeller: The Lord be with you.All: And also with you.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christaccording to John 14: 8-17, 25-27.All: Glory be to thee, O Lord.Philip said to Jesus, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will besatisfied.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you all this time,Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seenme has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is inme? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; butthe Father who dwells in me does his works. Believe me that I amin the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, thenbelieve me because of the works themselves. Very truly, I tell you,the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, infact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to theFather. I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Fathermay be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me foranything, I will do it. If you love me, you will keep mycommandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give youanother Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit oftruth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees himnor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, andhe will be in you. I have said these things to you while I am stillwith you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father willsend in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of allthat I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give toyou. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let yourhearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.”

Camille Saint-Saëns wrote his Sept Improvisations Op 150,between December 1916 and February 1917 while recovering inbed from bronchitis and gave their first performances inMarseille, Nice and Lyon a month or so later. ‘FeriaPentecostes’, the second of the improvisations and thismorning’s organ prelude, is based on the first hymn of Laudsfor Pentecost, Beata nobis gaudia (very loosely translated as“Again the circling seasons tell”, one of several translationsof this hymn).Composed in Vienna in 1768 when Wolfgang Amadeus Mozartwas 12 years old, Veni Sancte Spiritus is a motet for choir,soloists, organ and orchestra. It is in two parts, the first being asetting of a sequence for Pentecost followed by a concludingAlleluia. The choir sings continuously throughout, with shortsolo interpolations.“Draw us in the Spirit’s tether” was published in 1957, althoughthe hymn upon which the anthem is based was written in 1945by one of the more influential American church musicians ofthe 20th century, Harold Friedell (1905-1958). Using a textwritten by Percy Dearmer (1867-1936), Friedell composed it asa communion hymn specifically for Pentecost Sunday 1945.Taking his previously composed hymn tune, Friedell created theSATB anthem arrangement the choir is singing this morning.The text beautifully links the singers with the disciples whogathered with Christ at the table (Matthew 18:20). The imagethat we are joined by a “tether” is archaic, but an appropriateimage of the work of the Holy Spirit that links Christians ofevery time and place at the table. In the final stanza, poetDearmer makes a powerful statement that “All our meals and allour living make as sacraments of thee”; through “caring,helping, giving, we may true disciples be.” The hymn begins inthe upper room with the disciples and comes full circle as wejoin them around the table and are nourished to serve others inthe world.LIFE AND MINISTRY OF OUR COMMUNITYSunday schoolThe children will go to the Study for Sunday school followingthe Children’s Focus this morning.We welcome back Mary Ranni, recently returned from a welldeserved holiday in the UK.
