May 15, 2016. What does Pentecost mean? On the first Pentecost, the followers of Jesus asked Peter, who expanded on the words of the prophet Joel, and told them that they would be prophets themselves. We are modern day prophets. Emboldened, inspired, and ignited by the Holy Spirit, we too can share the importance of our faith. In Pastor Penny’s message today, she talks about how we can see the hand of God at work in difficult times, and how we can convey our message of hope to people even when they aren’t asking the question.
