Mary, I did some banner ideas for you today, as requested; just small sketches on my drawing pad. I wasn't sure if you meant Pentecost and Trinity (separate designs for each festival), or Pentecost with Trinity (combined themes), so I did some of each. These are mostly adaptions from my banner books. Colors can be changed as you like, of course. This gets a little tricky, to combine the themes, because Pentecost has red as its liturgical color and Trinity has green, and you don't want to use both in the same banner (thus getting a Christmas-y look). I think some of these done in quilt fabrics with quilt techniques would be lovely. They would be especially pretty embellished, and maybe with enhanced bottom edges in special shapes.
|Upper left: wind and cloven tongues of fire. Upper right and lower left: Pentecost and Trinity combined.|
|Left: Pentecost. Right: combined. Words could be added.|
|Left: Pentecost. Right: Trinity.|
|Left and right: Trinity. Middle: Pentecost|
|Left and right: Pentecost, could be done in various quilt fabrics. Middle: funeral; the center is the heavenly city on a hill, with the stream of living water below, and the light of the Son above, with optional words.|
Here are a couple more ideas.

If any of these appeal to you, or spark another idea, let me know and I can make a larger, more detailed drawing for actual use.
While we today had pouring rain, then thunder and hail, then snow, Mary said she had a fine morning for tea in her garden with Mom. How very nice, Mary; I may have to join you there until spring comes here.
