On the fiftieth day of Easter we celebrate the Spirit, through whom and in whom the people of God are created and re-created. Pentecost is sometimes called the church’s birthday, but might more appropriately be called its baptism day, since the gifts of the Spirit is the fullness of baptism. Ezekiel’s vision shows the Spirit resurrecting and re-creating not just individuals but a whole people. Romans makes it clear that God is in the process of re-creating the entire cosmos; yet the Spirit is also at work in the intimate and personal way, praying is us “with sighs too deep for words” when we do not know how to pray.

Lectionary Readings and Psalm:

 Acts 2:1-21

Mighty God, you breathe life into our bones, and your Spirit brings truth to the world. Send us this Spirit transform us by your truth, and give us language to proclaim your gospel, through Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever.  Amen.
