Sunday, June 9, we celebrate Pentecost, the day the Holy Spirit landed on the people of the early church likes tongues of fire. Don’t you wish sometimes that Spirit would land on your head like a flame, leaving you no doubt that this is a moment to pay attention? Wouldn’t it be fabulous if opening your mouth to speak, every person from every place, speaking every language understood every word? (Heck, I’d settle for my children understanding the phrase, “Please empty the dishwasher!”)
We can take a bit of comfort in the fact that even those Spirit-infused folks in the first Pentecost story turned to one another and asked, “What does this mean?” Times are changing and summer’s a coming, and what better time to pay attention to the places where you are being visited by the very presence of holy love? Where is Spirit at work in your life? What unknown future are you called to create in the name of holy love?
Those answers don’t always come easy, but they are made a little easier and a lot richer when we set the intention to try to figure it out in community. Scroll down to see the many ways you are invited to show up and worship, play, pray, serve and question together. Who knows where Spirit might land?
