I’ve been thinking a lot about community lately. Our community held strong during the pandemic, but it was stretched and tested and we have some rebuilding work to do, especially among our young families and young adults. Pentecost is the church’s celebration of the work of the Holy Spirit. God unleashed the Holy Spirit on Pentecost to share the good news of Jesus. But what strikes me is how the Holy Spirit chose a festival day when representatives of the whole human community were gathered in Jerusalem. People from every tribe and tongue. The work of the Holy Spirit is a work of rebuilding community, rebuilding the human community by uniting all people in Christ. As we work with the Spirit and the Spirit works through us we will find ourselves doing that same work of rebuilding. May God smile on our efforts!
