Water, Wind and Fire: The Holy Spirit in the New Testament
Time: Wednesday, October 19 at 7:00 pm
Location: Meeting Room

Wednesdays at 7 PM, beginning October 19th

Presented by Brian Pinter,  Education Associate and Bible scholar-in-residence at Christ Church United Methodist

Our ancestors in faith have long been aware of God’s immediate presence and impact on the human experience. Through their sacred writings they sought to express their sense of God’s creative, redeeming, inspiring power. Their metaphors and names for this mysterious but palpable presence evolved over the centuries until they came to call this energy the Holy Spirit.

Our study and discussion will explore the work of the Spirit as recorded in the New Testament, especially the writing of Luke, John, and Paul. We will seek to examine also how the biblical record impacted later theology of the Holy Spirit in the developing Christian Tradition.

About Brian Pinter
Brian Pinter is the former Chaplain and Teacher of Theology at Regis High School. He is currently the Education Associate and Bible scholar-in-residence at Christ Church United Methodist. Mr. Pinter holds degrees in theology and religion from St. Joseph’s and Fordham Universities.
