Pentecost

Pentecost

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. 4All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.  Acts 2.1-4

Speaking is one thing; listening is another.  As the church enters the celebration of Pentecost,  we should be reminded that just being able to use the words of another language doesn’t mean that we are communicating.  We need to listen to not just what is said, but how it’s said, by who is speaking.  Today we are able to communicate in so many different ways, but are we really listening? Are we doing the things that will allow ourselves to be heard?
