June 5, 2022 - Pentecost

Pentecost is a celebration.

It is also time of wonder and mystery. With tongues of fire, the disciples of Jesus were able to speak in other languages. I wish it were that easy to learn another language. I am luckily bilingual but it was hard work and I have to practice or I will lose it; it will go out like a flame.

Even today, people are more able to communicate when they can speak other languages. You can make connections around the globe by speaking in someone's language. Even if it is just a few words, people appreciate it. And they feel important and loved and understood.

So next time you meet someone who speaks another language; learn a few words. Try to have a conversation with them. I promise you will both feel good.

And remember to listen to what they are saying. Don't shout over them. It was not in the rushing wind or the loud thunder but a still, small voice.


Peace and love,
