One setting that did bring connections with the Spirit for many of us was nature; being among the trees, animals, and the elements can be enough to feel the Holy Spirit moving and working in the universe. We envision a Spirit that does not want to oppress or stomp out, but to allow for human flourishing.

This makes me wonder, what is it about God’s creation that causes us to feel a connection with the Spirit. Is it because creation is a reflection of God? Or tells us something of the beauty and life-giving nature that exists in the presence of God’s Spirit? It could be many things I suppose. I also love that it is written here that the Spirit does not want to oppress or stomp out, again here, I am caused to pause and reflect upon the nature of God as giver and not taker of life.
