Have you ever had an experience so incredible that when you tried to explain it to someone else, words didn’t really suffice?
Reflection of the Week - 14th June 2022
By Rev Anne Hewitt
Posted in Faith
Advocate, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, Wisdom, Spirit of God, Holy Spirit, wind, breath, fire – across our Bible and within our Christian traditions, we experience many aspects of the Spirit.
From before the earth, as we know it, was formed and during the genesis, God’s Spirit is present.
Wisdom is in God’s creation, comforting compassionately, informing righteousness, at the heart of justice, breathing peace into troubled spaces, interceding and advocating, and imparting ways to express ourselves when we alone cannot find a way.
As Jesus’ earthly mission transforms, he breathes the Spirit into the lives of the disciples. The Spirit’s presence transforms a gathering of unlikely acquaintances through a Pentecost of renewal, connecting them through living faith, God’s love, and Kairos time.
Trinitarian theology continues to be a complex ecumenical conversation. Faithful folk experience the Spirit’s presence, Jesus’ companionship, and God’s wonder in so many ways. How have you experienced God’s Spirit in your life, as an individual and in the community?
