Spring is the season of renewal—of the Spirit, as well as in nature. As we begin our exploration of comfort and joy this Easter season, and into Pentecost, remember that Comforter is one of the names given to the Holy Spirit in the Christian tradition. The Spirit lives within all things—in the created world, in you, in me. We can awaken to the presence of the Spirit in moments of comfort and joy—drinking a warm cup of tea, taking a walk, listening, laughing, and sitting quietly in a church. The Spirit is the breath of God and is the life-giver, and like St. Paul tells us, “The Spirit gives life.” (2 Cor 3:6).
