a sermon for the Day of Pentecost
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Knowledge, Fortitude, Piety, and Fear of God. But its greatest gift just might be Awe.
Please note: Today’s sermon was a gift of the Holy Spirit – there is no manuscript.
Also, the article on “Awe” to which I refer in the sermon was written by Paul PIff and Dacher Keltner and published in the New York Times on May 22, 2015. You can find it here: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/24/opinion/sunday/why-do-we-experience-awe.html
