We are presently in the Trinity season of the church calendar. This is the longest season, extending from Pentecost until Advent. The paraments on the pulpit and table help worshippers think of the Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Now that we have celebrated the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus and the gift of the Spirit in the church year, our focus shifts to living in the reality of our redemption. We respond to the grace of God through growth. The green colors, tree and wheat on the banners, picture the Church as it matures and bears the fruits of the Spirit. Pray for God to enable you to apply his revelation in your life and nurture your growth in Christ.
