Hearing Spirit ‘speak’

For the Lesson titled “Spirit” from February 3 – 9, 2014

From the February 3, 2014 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


What if you were invited to a film debut, only to discover the dialogue was in Urdu, an Indian and Pakistani language? You might have trouble understanding! While human language has its limitations, this Bible Lesson, “Spirit,” illustrates how the language of Spirit, God, can be understood by anyone, anywhere. The opening story in the Responsive Readings from Acts 1 and 2, now known as the “Pentecost,” shows how the language of Spirit communicates without restriction.
