Touching Lives through Christ by Reaching Out, Bringing In, Lifting Up, Sending Forth
NOVEMBER 9, 2014
Among Christians, Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy
Spirit upon the Twelve Apostles and other followers of Jesus, as described
in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1–31. For this reason, Pentecost is sometimes described by some Christians today as the "Birthday of the Church."
