Pentecost in the Park

D Day Bunting





Third Space commemorated D Day by stringing up bunting in the bandstand. Many of us had watched, read or listened to moving accounts of the Normany landings and the battle that followed, which freed Europe from the ideology of National Socialism. It is good to see that since then the countries who had been at war have joined together in peace.

“Blessed are the peacemakers” Matthew 5:9

The commemoration came at the same time as the festival of Pentecost – the birth of the church.

The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and changed them from a group cowering, scared and hiding in a room to people who told others boldly about Jesus and his teachings.

May we in Third Space use the fruits of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control (Galatians 5:22-23) and bravely bring in the KIngdom of Jesus and his teachings.
