Patheos.com is hosting a series on “How the Holy Spirit is Moving Today” Contributors were asked to respond in 100 words or less. Unfortunately I did not have time to respond because we were away on retreat the last few days. However great responses posted have really made me think, look and listen.
I see the Holy Spirit moving every time I watch a mother comfort her child or kiss her kids good night. I see the spirit move each time I kneel at the altar rail with friends to share communion. And I see the spirit move each time I watch someone become passionate about issues of justice and take a stand with the marginalized, the oppressed and the abandoned. And I see the spirit move in the midst of a church’s community garden. The spirit of God is at work in so many aspects of our world renewing, transforming and making all things new.
So check out Patheos.com for the great responses from the people listed below or respond here and tell me what you think .
