Principal.pngThis theme for this week, the week beginning 22 May, is Pentecost.   To be honest, when we put the calendar of themes together last year, I am not sure why we chose this week for Pentecost given that Pentecost Sunday was last week.  However, in the spirit of freedom, any and every week can be like a Pentecost celebration.  In the New Testament we read that on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came.  We have already said something about the Holy Spirit in recent weeks but I think the key thing with the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost was the transformation that took place.  The disciples were emboldened, Peter preached the first Christian sermon and the Church grew explosively.  Why?  In the Hebrew, the word used for Spirit is ‘ruach’.  This may, more accurately be translated as a breath.  If you can visualise a child’s bubble blowing bottle with a plastic stick which you dip into the liquid and blow through to get bubbles, you may get the picture.  What transforms the greasy, slimy liquid in the bottle into those beautiful perfect spheroids which float majestically upwards refracting the full colours of the rainbow in the sunlight?  That is, what transforms the ordinary into something beautiful?  The answer is a breath.  The Holy Spirit did this on the day of Pentecost in the first century and still does this today.
