Pentecost – Year A
Fear on the inside the equivalent to mighty winds on the outside. Both bring life-quakes.
A word of peace is a vision of a renewed appreciation of diversity (renewed from the richness of creation in all its variety and interdependence).
Forgiveness allows a next opportunity to hear again a mystery of the universe. This forgiveness and hearing cuts across all barriers that were thought to be so strong.
Forgiveness includes in those who have not had the same experience of fears relieved and community believed. Forgiveness is a blessing every once and future person needs to both experience and practice offering until it is second-nature.
So it is that life comes forth and is renewed.
