Pentecost–and Harvey Milk

Acts 2:1-11

Today is Pentecost and yesterday was the first “Harvey Milk Day”.  They are connected because the establishment of a day to honor “Harvey Milk” is a sign of the continued movement of the Holy Spirit, inspite of institutions that continually put down queers, and all others who are different.  It is a sign of the presence of God at work in the small groups of people who follow Jesus who do his work in the world.  People moan and groan about the problems of the hierarchy of the Roman Church, of the fundamentalist churches, and fail to see the moving of the Spirit in the churches who embrace all people, in ministries like mine that proclaim the gospel each day–proclaiming it in the words of St.Frances: “Preach the Gospel–using as few words as you can.”  The Holy Spirit is a live, and Jesus moves in our midst.  Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
