Pentecost is a feast about forgetting the answers and jumping into the questions while allowing the Spirit to reveal the always new and hopeful truth of our God.
The poet Rainier Maria Rilke once wrote, in Letters to a Young Poet:
“… I would like to beg you, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a foreign language. Don’t search for answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them.”
What are your questions, really?
Take a moment,
and let the Spirit
lift them to the surface of your life… for you to love them, once again.
‘The promise is to you and to your children and to all who are far away, to everyone whom the Lord our God may call.‘ Acts 2:39
