A Divine Symphony

Acts 2:1-13, NRSV

Reflections

God speaks people, fluently.

— Willie James Jennings

  • This act (Baptism of the Holy Spirit) by the Holy Spirit challenged the idea that holiness was determined by proximity to a more pure and dominant expression of faith. It challenged the idea that God would only speak to or be heard by the most devout teachers and religious leaders who spoke the purest form of their language. It challenged the idea that everyone needed to be fluent in a universal language and conform to one culture to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
