Pentecost (Acts 2:1-12; Ezekiel 37:1-14)

Ian Ferguson joins us for our Pentecost episode, where we talk about the creative, regenerative power of the Holy Spirit as she comes to us in Acts 2:1-21 and Ezekiel 37:1-14. Ezekiel’s vision of the dry bones shows the power of God’s Spirit to bring life from death. In the Acts passage the Spirit is robust and dramatic, infusing believers with gifts, with conversion and the joy of faith. We mention the inherently outward focus of the Spirit and therefore our outward posture as Spirit bearers, exercising our gifts, in and as community, for the sake of the world. Ian referred to ‘linguistic colonialism’ which is a quote from Willie Jennings’ Theological Commentary on Acts
