Reflection on Pentecost

Pentecost celebrates the many and varied expressions of God’s love and wisdom. The spirit blows where it wills, embracing all peoples. God’s spirit touches every life, aiming us toward communion, inspiration, and creation. A living God calls us to expect great things – of ourselves and of God. This adventurous Spirit is surely at work among the Pentecost Christians.

Their experiences drive them to share words of graceful transformation with people of all nations. Lives are joined and transformed, despite the differences of race and class. We are one and many in God’s ever-surprising Spirit. Let us breathe in God’s spirit, making every moment a prayer and a mission.
