I’m a huge fan of the Holy Spirit part of the trinity. Something fiery which can immediately make you fluent in another language? Yes please, I’ll take the fire that lets you speak all the languages with all the people, thank you. Although, for most of my life, it was only really the part about languages and fire I was fascinated by, I never thought much about the Holy Spirit itself until I spent a week at Taizé back in 2014.
"We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world, for love is the only way." – Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
From the beginning of the shelter-in-place order in Connecticut, I have been holed up in my second floor apartment in New Haven. A family of four – the father is also a Divinity School student and trusted friend – occupies the first floor and I have been very lucky to share this truly unusual experience with them safely.
