Pentecost: Sunday, June 4: Speaking in Tongues

Do you read or speak another language? Would you like to speak at the 10AM Pentecost services on June 4?

On the day of Pentecost (Sunday, June 4) at the 10AM Eucharist, we would like people in the congregation who can speak languages other than English to stand in their pew and read the lesson (Acts 2:5-12) in another language, while the Lector reads the lesson in English.
The reading from the Acts of the Apostles tells of the disciple’s speaking in tongues and those in the street hearing it in their own language. Hearing all the languages at the same time will give us a powerful sense of that first Pentecost. Can you help? If so, please be in touch with Rob Schwartz at email@example.com for clarifying questions and to let us know what language you will be speaking.
HOW IT WORKS:
As you’re listening to the First Reading in the service, when you hear the Lector say, “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages,” stand at your seat and START reading your version in a loud voice. Please STOP reading when you hear the Lector stop, whether or not you have completed your version. This allows all readings to proceed and stop at the same time.
Bring your own translation, or print one of the translations here to bring with you.
All languages, all readers welcome!
