The Whitsun/Pentecost event is, among other things, a call for the development of both the free individual and our conscious belonging to the whole of humanity. We will celebrate this theme with a presentation by Marc Clifton on the significance of Whitsun as well as music, poetry, movement by some of our community members. There will also be opportunities for your participation.

World Language Circle
Members of the community are invited to recite the beginning of The Lord’s Prayer in a World Language. That can be your first language or a learned language. Or perhaps you would challenge yourself to learn these words in a language that is under-represented in our community. We have someone learning the prayer in the original Aramaic and someone else representing our indigenous people by learning these words in Abenaki (a language of the Algonquin people). We also have Latin, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Ukrainian. If you are able to offer another language, please contact Gloria Kemp kempgloria@gmail.com or 518-672-4844 to learn more and sign up.

Flower Exchange
Rudolf Steiner called Whitsun a festival of flowers. Come to the festival bearing a flower that will be joined with others to grace our space and leave with one someone else has brought.
