For Further Reflection/discussion

  • Let’s celebrate and rejoice in the power of the Spirit within us! Seeds planted will grow! Let’s continue to bring the Spirit’s harvest!
  • The calendar centers us on what God has done and will do through his Holy Spirit. It is a constant reminder of gifts we cannot create, but can only accept.
  • Much of the power comes through repetition. Year after year, week after week, the acts of God, the acts of God are commemorated and our appreciation of them deepened. These cycles save us from a shallow spirituality, based on ourselves, by pointing to God’s works.
