Today is Pentecost Sunday, for a few more hours here at least.
Happy and blessed Pentecost to Christians everywhere! Have any Hubbers observed any special commemoration of the day?

I know what you mean! I grew up in a Christian denomination and at a time that pretty much ignored Pentecost. In more recent years, I have come to understand and appreciate the significance of it much more deeply.
It's very significant. An initial empowerment of hope and knowledge which sent the disciples and others out to spread the Gospel, just as each sinner today who receives Christ as Savior becomes immediately filled with the Spirit and is empowered to boldly "go into all the world" and "preach" and "prophesy" about the Lord.
