As twenty-first century westerners, we live in a world of unprecedented prosperity and wealth — a life far more pleasant than the lives of our ancestors. And yet, rates of depression and anxiety are rising, especially among the young. Why hasn’t our ever growing material prosperity resulted in ever growing levels of contentment and joy? To quote the scriptures, “Man cannot live by bread alone.” There is a hole within the human heart that no food, drink or entertainment could ever fill. We were all of us born with a deep, spiritual thirst. Jesus knows this. That’s why he says, in today’s Gospel reading, “If anyone is thirsty let him come to me and drink.” The “waters” that Jesus offers to give us is the Holy Spirit. Today, on Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. How can we receive the Holy Spirit? What does it mean for our lives if we do? That’s what Terence will be talking about in his sermon.
