Pentecost serves in many respects as the “Feast of the Holy Spirit” in Christian traditions. The three New Testament readings assigned for this day each reflect a slightly different understanding of the role and function of the Spirit in the world, but they converge around the theme that the work of the Holy Spirit in believers and in the cosmos is specifically manifested in the making of relationships and the unification of many into one.
