This year I heard the readings differently:
…there were dwelling in Jerusalem devout Jews from every nation under heaven… The reason the Church started as a multinational multiethnic beloved community is because we were born from a rich and diverse multinational multiethnic Judaism.
This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees nor knows the Spirit. The Western Church normalized the Greek gospels. But Jesus spoke Aramaic, the language still used in many Eastern churches. Jesus would not have misgendered the Spirit: This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees her nor knows her. You know her, because she abides with you, and she will be in you.
Let the Spirit have her day, her way and her will. And let the Church reflect the diversity of our heritage not just from the macro level when you add all of us together, but visible at the ground level from congregation to congregation. Monotonal monolingual congregations and their worship are part of the tapestry of the church they just don’t reflect it as clearly.
