This message begins a series of talks on Knowing God that will run through to Pentecost. On Transfiguration Sunday Francis brought out what the set readings show about knowing God and the ways people can avoid actually knowing him.
On Pentecost Sunday we continued our May month theme of the Holy Spirit. God has always been about giving life to humanity. Pentecost marks a new season or mode of delivery. Francis maps this out and encourages all to live in the Pentecost season for what God is giving now.
As we approach the days marking Ascension and Pentecost Francis offers a small series on Embracing the Holy Spirit. This message begins by asking what we understand by ‘spirit’ and then considers what power we need for the intended purpose of witnessing to Jesus.
