*This post is super awesome and contains 15 pic’s *
I’ve cogitated! Pentecost approaches and there is either special decoration nor gifts we have to present! I wonder why the business community, which is usually so keen, ingenious and productive to milk every harmless custom, didn’t discover Pentecost!
One point might be the lack of information what that party is about. Some do remember gloomy its Holy – Spirit- something. For the crowd it’s just a nice, long weekend for BBQ, hiking or swimming and celebrate the first summerly days…
I did a little Google research – God bless the internet – to enable me developing appropriate attractive goods.
Basically it is the ‘Outpouring of the Holy Spirit’. Guess people in the past had the same problem like I today – how to draw the Holy Spirit?! The Christian Church was always very resourceful in marketing. That brings me tangential to the fact, that their favorite ruse was adopting old and popular riteplaces or celebrations with tiny adjustments. Easter was the pagan fertility rite and christmas was already for caveman the return of the light. But run off the topic…. Back to pentecost!
Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter. Original cause was the jewish Revelation of the Thora – you see this is obviously a good day to reveal wisdom.
The disciples had all assembled at the big Schawout (jewish for 50) festivity in Jerusalem. You see, apparently a good day to party – our BBQ gatherings are not too wrong!
They were all sitting together suddenly there was a roar and tongues of fire imbued them with the Holy Spirit and they all started highly inspirited to sermon in different languages.
(…Well guy’s, usually I don’t talk about public, but I remember also such wild, language-changing party’s in my youth…)
They were so fully imbued of that epiphany that they felt like heading out into the world to tell about.
That’s why Pentecost is considered as the birth hour and foundation of the Christian Church and the begin of the missionary work.
Together with the Pneuma the Holy Trinity was complete. Godfather, Son of God as a symbol for understanding the earthly matters ( usual the female part in religions, but some over-ambitious guy’s cleared away womanhood as well as possible) and the Holy Spirit accomplish the task to link these realms, to transport divining powers and inspire the world with wisdom.
But before I produce too much gibberish and hold smarty long lectures I would like to share my decoration and gift ideas.
THE PERFECT WINDOW
My very first idea was to draw a church with flames, but then had the afflatus, that might look like a burning house, and I really do not want harm anyone!
But the church idea is very good and significant. I suggest the we decorate our windows with cute church buildings in honor of the foundation. The children can craft some flames – LOOK HOW NICE!
If you are a glutton for decoration I recommend the full version for the front yard. This outstanding innovation will make your complete neighbourhood envy! All weather resistant, indirect illumination and each even hour a loud swoosh rings out and flame thrower ignite self. Your Kids will love it! After the season it can be used for camping or lock neighbours naughty dog or other unbidden guests in.
For women’s fashion industry I’ve created an awesome aliceband with flames, the british names that fascinator, and if you are the one with the surpassing decoration in your front yard you deserve a branded designer hat for your outdoor activities!
For Daddy, I’ve prepared a cool pentecost cap which makes his flames inspiring. This item is material for a big seller! It’s a cheap small present, it can be handily placed it in every supermarket and gas station. Men like fire, it gives them a powerful male charisma.
Likewise online market. These Apps will be blockbuster and change our live.
If God likes to speak to me, he uses sometimes books for…
As a reminiscence to the jewish Revelation of the Thora and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, symbols of wisdom God gave to the mankind, I suggest to establish the tradition to present books at pentecost.
Valentines Day = flowers, Pentecost = book.
That’s easy to remember, customer will quickly get used to this. And books can really be meaningful and change one’s live!
Kids could draw cute postcards at school about what and who they get inspired …..
…. and what about they are actually inspired
Adults should send each other postcard’s with profound messages and congratulate with
*HAPPY WISDOMING TO YOU*
After years of joking about I’ve done it! My first postcard is printed.
Well, I could continue for ever like this: Bakery’s could sale gingerbread churches, sports outfitters could provide us with missionary poles for hiking and language schools could offer a special weekend course “Learn how to order beer in 20 different languages”…
But this post is already to long and I must come to an end!
If you are a businessmen, contact me to acquire my profitable Ideas!
If you are jewish, it would be very nice to hear a bit more about your Schawout tradition.
If you like to pre-order my awesome postcards let me know!
I would like you to know, that I share the doctrine of sudden enlightenment – it happens sometimes to me 🙂
I wish you HAPPY PENTECOST –
THANK YOU ALL for your inspiring posts & comments!
May the spirit make you enthusiastic, may you be sheltered of opinions, may you recognize deadlocks when you are in, may you try to speak in foreign languages – it’s a great fun, may you be courageous to live your uniqueness, may you keep your mind open and your bum wagging!
This is your life
Do what you love, and do it often.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop;
they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over analyzing, life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once; seize them.
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating.
Live your dream, and wear your passion.
Life is short.
I LOVE IT!
