As the Day of Pentecost approaches it occurs to me that we Christians keep celebrating the same holiday (singular) over and over. Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, and all in between seem to have the same theme. In some form or fashion the various stories tell of the Presence of God dramatically invading humanity.

Ironically we celebrate these holy days as events in the past with longing that God will show up again. We say things like "If it could only be (insert holiday) everyday." Now don't get me wrong. I enjoy celebrating holidays, but what about just a regular old Thursday?   Perhaps the real purpose of the holiday(s) is to remind us that the Divine is always with us in common things like mangers, tombs, wind, fire, language, bread, wine, - in short - everything!  Every day really is Christmas, Easter and Pentecost!  Happy, Merry Chri-ster-cost!
