Pentecost: Feast of Spirit | Discourse 1 | eBOOK
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
by Rev Mario Schoenmaker
In this series of discourses, Rev Mario ponders the historical happening, evolutionary significance and personal implications of the cosmos-shifting happening we call Pentecost. If you have wanted to understand this tremendous outpouring of spirit from a deeper perspective, these discourses will enable you to enter into this unique event and embrace it.
These discourses were given over the course of twenty years at different times of the year and in different settings so they reflect both a constant and evolving perspective of Pentecost. We suggest you take your time with each one. These discourses are challenging and inspiring, a feast of spirit.
Discourse 1 | Pentecost and its Challenge for the Future
In the context of a spiritual retreat titled ‘Realisation’, Rev Mario used the signature text of Acts 2 to muse on some of the elements of Pentecost, the disciples, the wind, the fire, the speaking in tongues. He sees the evolutionary signs of being thrust out of group consciousness and the importance of being able to identify in the future with wind and fire.
