Mother Maxine Barnett, Curate at The Church of St, Jude (Episcopal) in Wantagh, NY explains that sometimes we like to be “back seat drivers” and try to get others to do things our own way. Jesus told his disciples to come to him and be yoked so that they would do things in ways that he thought were right, rather than doing things their own way.

The Feast of Pentecost Whitsunday June 4, 2017 On Sunday, Mother Maxine Barnett, Curate at The Church of St. Jude (Episcopal) in Wantagh, NY explains that language is extremely important in our lives. Sometimes, even when people speak to us in our own language, we have difficulty understanding what they’re saying. Language often defines community, and, today’s Pentecost Bible reading is a story of community. Jesus tells the gathering of his Disciples in the Upper Room that he will send the Holy Spirit.

The Disciples were able to speak to the people gathered and be understood in each of the people’s languages so that they could hear the Good News of what God has done for them....
