Quote of the Week. . .
Food for Thought. . .
As we observed the Feast of Pentecost this past Sunday, I was reminded of the wonderful reversal that is a part of the Pentecost story. Peter and the other disciples are in Jerusalem for the Jewish celebration of Shavuot. Along with the disciples are people from all across the Ancient Near East. Different languages, ethnicities, and commitments. According to the story from the book of Acts, the sound of a violent wind filled the room, and what looked like tongues of fire rested on the individuals in the room. People started speaking in tongues about the works of God. Rather than confusion reigning, people from those various points in the Ancient Near East instead heard the message in their own language. They were able to understand. The major reversal that this story juxtaposes is the myth of the Tower of Babel in Genesis. There people seek to build a tower to the heavens and to see God. However, God has other plans. God introduces different languages into the mix, the people cannot understand one another, and the building of the tower ceases.
