I want to propose a new celebration be added to the sacred calendar. I am not sure why it hasn’t already been suggested—it would commemorate an event that means so much to followers of Jesus, and I think we need more occasions to remember what He has done for us.
And yet, some of the holidays already on the books don’t get much attention. Many churches will observe the holiday Pentecost on Sunday, May 23. That Sunday celebrates one particular and extraordinary occurrence of the annual Jewish holiday known as the Feast of Weeks, also called Shavuot or Pentecost (See Jewish Facts of Life). But for many churches, May 23 will pass with no special emphasis.
