Pentecost Languages

Print off different translations of the Lord’s Prayer from the internet (www.marypages.com/TheLordPrayer.htm) and hand them out randomly to people in the congregation. Read them out at the same time during the service. We are reading different words but we understand what is being said. Give everyone a strip of paper with a different translation of the words Come, Holy Spirit – these can be spoken all together as part of the service (Veni Sancte Spiritus - Latin, Viens Saint Esprit - French, Komm Heiliger Geist - German, Ven Espiritu Santo - Portuguese, Vieni Spirito Santo – Italian, and Come Holy Spirit). People in the church congregation might have others to add.
