morning bell: veni sancte spiritus

 

We are really looking forward to our next morning bell collaboration – a series for Pentecost beginning tonight – entitled Veni Sancte Spiritus (Come Holy Spirit) and featuring the images of film-maker and photographer Jo Dolby with words by Ian.

The Pentecost story is full of hope – but taken seriously it will leave us neither comfortable nor undisturbed. Jo takes photos of abandoned places – in the case of this series they are from an abandoned military base and an abandoned bus depot. We think that Jo’s images carry both a sense of disturbance and hope. If you want to explore the Pentecost story in the life of the early followers of the Jesus path check out the 2nd chapter of the book of the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament.

So, this Pentecost dare we say Veni Sancte Spiritus?
