God’s Holy Spirit means to bring us together, to allay differences, to let us hear other persons in the way they express themselves, not just to think about our own self.
Scripture tells us that the Holy Spirit is the concrete, conceivable, and tangible insides of charity, joy, peace, patience, goodness, longsuffering, fidelity, gentleness, and chastity.
In the age of the Spirit-filled church, all human beings are invited into communion with the Lord and with each other.
The coming of the Spirit should fill us with dreams and visions of a better world.
Could the gifts of the Spirit help eradicate many of our problems?
even sparrows came
to rest and listen
