The Spirit and the Church

  • Date & Time: Tuesday, 7 May 2013, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Just as it is not easy to get a grip on the wind, it can be difficult to grasp the Holy Spirit. We have to look for the effects which the Spirit has: the disturbing, empowering, inspiring, enlivening, convicting effects. Where do we find talk of the Spirit in the Bible? In what kind of contexts, and with what kind of effects? Where has talk of Godís spirit been prominent in the history of the church? Do common themes emerge? What does it mean in the 21st century to understand the Church as called and sent by God in Christ, and as empowered by the Spirit?
