A contest will begin worship on Sunday. Two prizes: One for the best red outfit. The other for the best red / Pentecost background.
We are going to begin worship with the kids this week. So they can show off their red first. And then we will look for the other outstanding examples / entries. The kids will choose who has the best red outfit and who has the best red background.
We usually decorate the Sanctuary for Pentecost. Steamers. Balloons. Floor runners. Unnameable creations that Mindy made — that looked like hairnets for giants (remember the year I was installed!). And, when we remember, we also ask people to wear red.
Ok, this year when we are online and at home, the “wear red” is easy. Even if you forget, just duck off camera to find your red t-shirt.
But the “decorating the Sanctuary” is a bit complicated when it includes all our houses. Or at least the rooms in which we are online. Or the frame we can see as you are zooming. It can be a real, physical background or a virtual background.
