1. Dr. Cindye Coates, who designed the banner on the About page, suggests wearing purple (for royal dominion) and gold (for the pure present truth) on the day of this celebration. She also suggests that we get rid of old things (e.g. donate to charity) and get something brand new. This is in celebration of the end of the old covenant and the fullness of the new covenant.
2. Dr. Chuck Crisco shared these ideas:
Of course, what is a holiday without food. What if we developed a tradition of families of churches all trying new food dishes on this special day for the same reason? Imagine the fun the cooks would have and the looks on the faces of those whose taste buds are awakening to new flavors!
Since we are the temple of the Holy Spirit instead of a building made with hands, it would be great to have a church service outside the building, or even do a day of community service so that we teach people they ARE the temple of God.
Even better, we could do a practical exercise around the table with our families and remind them of the good things that we see in them. Paul said, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus” (Philemon 6).
Other ideas are welcome and will be added to this page.
