We have sun! Or at least we did when I wrote this! May is a lovely month as the flowers continue to bloom, the days get longer and we carry with us the joy of Easter. God’s amazing love for us has been clearly demonstrated and we wait for the celebration of Pentecost with the coming of the Holy Spirit.
When the Holy Spirit came after Jesus ascended, believers began praising God in many languages, languages that they had not learnt. I am sure this symbolically emphasises the unity God desires for us to have with one another. As St Paul writes “There is no longer Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.”
All are one in Christ. There are no outsiders, none that are lesser than ourselves. In Christ there are no excluding boundaries, let us not be the ones to create them.
May the Holy Spirit empower us with love for our neighbour, and with neighbour being the whole circumference of the globe. Amen
