As Pentecost renews the Church and brings to conclusion the celebration of the Season of Easter, we ask that the Spirit of Truth come upon ourselves and our nation. Speaking the truth in love is what Jesus Christ admonishes us to do. We can be the beginning of a mighty change that we need in our nation to begin seeking the truth and speaking the truth. Pontius Pilot asked Jesus during his interrogation before his death, “What is truth?” As a political person, Pilot underscores the false premise that truth is only relevant so as to achieve our own ends, that truth is ultimately illusive. This premise we must reject as followers of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit allows us to discern and pray that the truth will be revealed by the author of all TRUTH – Jesus Christ our Lord who is the way, the truth, and the life.
