You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you are forever opposing the Holy Spirit, just as your ancestors used to do. Acts 7:51 (NRSV)
To read this passage, in the United States in 2019, as a critique of only the Jews is tragically and monumentally missing the point of this passage – and the rest of scripture.
In every age we find new ways to oppose the Spirit. When we hold too tightly to our own dogma, we will ignore or destroy what we believe contradicts it.
How much easier to stay open to all the ways Spirit desires to move in our midst.
