Pentecost

Among all the pyrotechnics of the events of the day of Pentecost, the lectionary also has us listen to Jesus' promise of the spirit in John's gospel:
John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15

I was very struck by this part of what Jesus says:
'And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: about sin, because they do not believe in me; about righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will see me no longer; about judgment, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.'

If there's time this week (and I am beset by funerals) I would like to think more about how the Spirit helps us makes sense of this world and of God's place in it...
