  1. Yesterday was the Day of Pentecost, and I was invited as the virtual preacher.
  2. I am almost embarrassed to admit that, after over 40 years in Pentecost, over 20 as a minister, I had never come across the insight I heard yesterday--on Mother's Day. My church had a guest speaker--a Presbyterian minister, who happened to be Pentecostal (okay--that was important in our church). He pointed out Mary was in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost. Scripture says they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and spake in tongues. So, if this infilling of the Spirit is good enough for the Mother of God, is it not something we should pursue? So, how does this play out in LDS spirituality? Do folk speak of experiences with the Spirit. I know that "led by the Spirit" is a common refrain. Seeking confirmation from the Spirit is as well. What of being filled? And, what would be the result of such an experience? In Protestantism there are a few ideas about this. The main two are that the infilling of the Spirit is for power--to be witnesses. The other, is that its power for holiness (sanctification). A few even believe there are distinct experiences for each. If nothing else, I'm reminded of Jesus promise that if we seek righteousness we will be filled. Further, if we seek gifts from the Father, he'll not give us bad ones.
