stiff wind

Friday May 31st,  John 16:  "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when (s)he, the Spirit of truth, comes, (s)he will guide you into all truth.  I always thought the Greek word for the Holy Spirit was a feminine noun.  When the Spirit comes to us, she will guide us in all truth, not knowledge, not wealth, not power, but in truth.  And in that truth we are sent into the world to serve one another. The purpose of the Holy Spirit is not for narcissistic astaticism, but rather, as was shown in the book of Acts, a good stiff wind at our backs as we go out into all the world to be the love of Christ active in this world.  That wind blowing us out into the world with the message of God’s love and grace is the Spirit and her name is Holy.
