Pentecost Grid Blog 2005

In an effort to spread the word in our own way, I'm posting about Pentecost as part of the Pentecost Grid Blog 2005.

What is Pentecost?

For devout Christians, this feast celebrates the day when the Holy Spirit descended among the followers of Jesus, allowing them to communicate with each other even though they didn't know each other's native language. This is the "speaking in tongues" referred to in Acts 2:1 and celebrated today on the seventh Sunday after Easter. In the early church, the entire 50-day period following Easter was known as Pentecost, but today it is restricted to just a single day.

When the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues, like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Acts 2.1)

We should all be thankful that the Holy Spirit did descend upon us, and is there to guide us back to Him and towards righteousness when we become misguided, delusional, or, per the title of my blog, "outta whack." We should be thankful that no matter who we are, where we come from, what language we speak, etc., the Holy Spirit flows through all of us and is there to help give us community. Given we are all sinners, it is a blessing "she" is there to show us the way home. I say "she" as my wife explained to me that the Holy Spirit is God's feminine side - I would have never thought it that way, but it makes sense if you listen to my wife tell me Susie's explanation of it - always mixing things up, aren't you Susie?

does this mean you read the pentecost grid blogs? and you didn't comment? (what!??) and yes i do like to rattle your cage... the Holy Spirit is definitely the feminine side of G-d, but even in saying that , remember that g-d is beyond gener, and masculine and feminine are our human constructs for the Inconcomprehnsible Eternal One.
btw- next time leave a comment. but thanks for the plug. would love to hear which grid blogs you enjoyed...?

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
