Pentecost: Acts 2:1-21 with John Flett

Rev Associate Professor John Flett joins us this week for a rich conversation about Pentecost and mission. We focus Acts 2:1-21 and John 20:19-23, drawing similarities and contrasts in the way the Spirit is portrayed in each text. We talk joy, peace, freedom, and being sent for the sake of the world, not for our own sake. John outlines ‘what not to do’ in a Pentecost sermon, and then offers a more faithful, radical alternative. We mention John’s latest book Questions of Context, and an article by Craig Barnes, The Spirituality of Quarantine.
