The Spirit’s Gentle Power to Break Us Open
June 5, 2022
On Pentecost Sunday, our guest presider, the Rev. Dina Widlake, notes that the Holy Spirit can be many things at many times. Peaceful and gentle, like the dove often used to symbolize it. But also fiercely powerful and uncontrollable, like the violent rush of wind that overtook the disciples at the Pentecost. God’s untamed grace visits us all, not to break us down, but to break us open so that we can know and respond to each other in new ways.
See Acts 2:1-21 and John 14:8-17
