THE HOLY SPIRIT

THE HOLY SPIRIT

Who is the Holy Spirit?
An old man with tatooed ankles, sitting in a wheelchair with a huge box on his lap.

How is the Holy Spirit revealed in the Old Covenant?
As something that happened after the flood, the Babel tower with its scattered speech.

How is the Holy Spirit revealed in the New Covenant?
As a man with cufflinks reading the Post.  A waitress who has a friend with a waterbed store and a knowledge of museums.   A woman with a pile of papers who smiled at me when I ordered grits for the first time in my life.

How do we recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives?
When we slip easily into any persona:  proclaim through the mouth-hole, peer at the shifting blur before our eyes.

How do we recognize the truths taught by the Holy Spirit?
By writing a poem every morning before breakfast, keeping the gas tank at least half full, and being sure to give the cats second supper every night.
