About the Resource
Pneumatology, the study of the Holy Spirit, is filled with discourse that overwhelmingly focuses on the vertical nature of one’s relationship with God. This has resulted in some who separate spiritual matters from matters that are social, political, and justice-oriented. In this Plenary, we will examine John 7:7-15, and share how the “Paraclete” not only compels us to engage in matters of social justice but also empowers Christ’s Church to share the Kingdom with the world.
