Pentecost +1 - Year C
We participate in Pentecost when we learn from Spirit, "There is more to life than hiding away."
We participate in Pentecost when we teach Spirit to others, "There is more to life than hiding away."
These parallel pieces of wisdom help keep us on track when difficulties and temptations come to return to hiding. They are the internal and external aspects of moving from plateau to plateau; moving from more life to yet more life.
Regardless of how things go bump in the night and we sense we are abandoned, we remind each other of these key pieces of wisdom.
So, this is practice time. Will you keep moving on without your own personal trainer (incarnate Jesus or instructor Spirit)? Will you keep moving on without your initial inspiration? Will you stop judging; in the arc of justice you know where things are going, so just get on with living your expectations.
Pentecost is not a one time deal. It is time to learn a next lesson, to catch a new vision, and to engage strangers.
