Pentecost: Uniquely Embodied Gifts

On Pentecost Sunday, Gena Minnix reflects on how the Spirit transforms our embodied selves and wounds into unique gifts that enliven the body of Christ.  Molly Clack also shares her reflections on this text [1 Corinthians 12:4-12].

Reflection

  • When you’re feeling most alive in your embodied self, what are you usually doing?
  • How might your unique gift to the community of Christ come from your own place of woundedness?

Spiritual Practice

  • This week, notice what you’re doing when you feel most alive and at home in your embodied self — how might that point to a gift of the Spirit unique to who you are?
  • Spend time this week reflecting on a part of yourself you think of as wounded, weak, or imperfect — how might that wound be transformed into an embodied gift needed by the community of Christ?
