Pentecost

Today we consider the concept of the “Pentecost?”  It refers to the descent and reception of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles and others in the upper room after the resurrection of Christ.  It is our source of strength and connection with God.  Christ ascended into Heaven but did not leave us orphaned to face this world alone.  The Holy Spirit is the heavenly glue which works through us and gives us the ability to do great works.  You will commonly find it working through people who do not subscribe to a faith because we are all children of God and therefore share that bond.  I encourage everyone to draw on that power and open your eyes to the world seeking it out in all people.  The Spirit can grab hold of someone making them shout “Amen!” but it also works through people in acts of kindness, generosity, and love.  They say if you look for trouble, you will find it.  I also say that if you look for the Holy Spirit, you will find that He has been there all along.
