Find out in your congregation the various languages people can read/speak. Personally, invite one person for each language to read on Pentecost Sunday. The reading is Acts 2: 1-21. The lector reads as would be usual, verse 1-4. Verse 4 reads: and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them ability. Have the lector pause, and at this point the other readers stand where they are in the congregation, with their Bibles open to the passage. As the lector begins to read again from verse 5, the invited readers begin reading in their own language (also beginning at verse 5). Everyone reads until they reach the end of verse 21. Note that all readings will not end at exactly the same moment; when a reader is done, they are to be seated.
The wind and fire ---many voices—were heard one year at Resurrection in Halifax. The hearing of the Word in this way gave a real experience of the chaos of language and the excitement of that first Pentecost. The Word was heard in English, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, German, Ethiopian, French, Estonian, Latvian, and Russian. After reflection, if it were to be done again in Halifax, it would be an idea to invite a person from the First Nation community, the Lebanese Orthodox Church up the street, and a local Arabic speaking Catholic.
