Sermon for 5/15/16: Chasing the Spirit

Acts 2:1-21, Psalm 104:24-34, 35b, John 14:8-17

Suggested scripture readings usually are drawn from the alternative lectionary outlined in Brian McLaren's We Make the Road by Walking (reference and public library). However, with Pentecost Sunday here, we return for a day to the Revised Common Lectionary.

Many are convinced that the correct pronunciation [of Yahweh] is an attempt to replicate and imitate the very sound of inhalation and exhalation. The one thing we do every moment of our lives is therefore to speak the name of God. This makes it our first and our last word as we enter and leave the world.
— Richard Rohr in The Naked Now

Sermon Notes

Take a peek at The Naked Now by Richard Rohr (reference and public library) for some thought-provoking reflections, some of which appear in my sermon.
