Can These Bones Live? Iona Abbey, Isle of Iona, by Mark Braverman – Pentecost Sunday, May 27, 2012
Contrasting the first disciples’ experience on the Day of Pentecost with God’s promise in Ezekial: “I will cause breath to enter you and you shall live.” The church is called to recognize the signs of the times, the “insurmountable opportunity” of Kairos Palestine, a call to redemption and rebirth. The church has done it before and can do it again.
God is Breaking In, Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, by Mark Braverman – Holy Thursday, April 24, 2014
The message of the risen Christ is that God has changed, God is doing something new and unprecedented. So also with the message of Pentecost, a call to a radical reorientation, a change of heart and mind. Jesus’ appearance on earth, his resurrection, the arrival of the Holy Spirit – all are kairos moments, God breaking into history and challenging his people to hear a new message. The message of Kairos Palestine challenges the Church today theologically and politically, a challenge to bring about the kingdom of God here on earth.
