What the world longs to breathe was given to the church in the breath of Christ. Pentecost may be the report of an action in the first century; but it is the hope of new action and new life for the 21st century. And it is through the church, whose very life is dependent on that breath of Christ, and whose very life is itself a gift, that God's breath of fresh air will stir and renew the world. (from the homily for the Day of Pentecost)
The 11 homilies in this book are based on Gospel texts, primarily from Matthew. Homilies follow the Roman Catholic, Revised Common, and Lutheran lectionaries.
""Many of the lections of this gospel cycle contain familiar stories. It requires fresh movements and the new wind of God's Spirit to breathe freshness into them and make them come alive,"" writes Larry M. Goodpaster. ""Perhaps as you read and reflect (on these messages) ... God's Spirit will blow in a new way into your heart and mind.""
Larry M. Goodpaster, Oxford, Mississippi, holds a master's degree and doctorate from Candler School of Theology. He has served as instructor at various preaching schools.
