Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Dave Howarth (Associate Vicar Holy Cross)
Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. (Acts 2.2)
The illustration above captures well the sense of movement and dynamism at Pentecost in Acts 2.1-11, as the Holy Spirit “arrives”. The movements mentioned are in many directions, and appear at one level to set the agenda for the rest of the book. Although the whirl of activity slows down as the chapters move on, and the narrative at times becomes more reflective and extended, there is still a sense 27 chapters later that the force unleashed at Pentecost continues to have momentum. Indeed, that is the case 2000 years later, if we have eyes to see it.
As we delve into 2.1-11 at the 10am, can you spot them all?
From heaven to earth
From private to public
From individual to communal
From the exclusive to the universal
From future to present
From confusion to clarity
(And if anyone knows how to make these Pentecost cupcakes, count me in!)
