Why are there so many fewer imaginative resources dedicated to the feast of Pentecost as opposed to Christmas and Easter? My guess is that its partly that our cultural context (primarily commercial) supports the latter two, and so the church finds it simpler to engage them in response.

I also wonder if Pentecost has been so “owned” by the tribe and label that it has been Christianly politicized to an extent that the remainder of evangelicalism has avoided it. So here’s the bigger question —

How do we begin to engage in the same rich theological reflection that we dedicate to our other high days? How do we learn to live in the reality of Pentecost as thoroughly as we do in the reality of incarnation and resurrection? How do we let Pentecost form our faith and practice to the same degree?
