Reading: Acts 2:1-21 (Click to read text)
When the Spirit of God is first introduced in the Genesis creation stories we encounter the Hebrew word RUACH: wind, spirit, breath. It swept across the earth. And we hear of that wind again in today’s scripture “a sound like the rush of a violent wind.” And, Luke tell us, “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit.”
How might we experience the Holy Spirit today? I hope there is a breeze (not a violent wind) to remind us that the Holy Spirit stirs among us.
Sing with me:
Spirit, Spirit of gentleness, blow through the wilderness calling and free;
Spirit, Spirit of restlessness, stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea.
