By Rev. Nancy Neal

As we come to truly understand that it is possible to end hunger by 2030, this month's texts remind us that we follow a God who truly fights for those who are vulnerable. We are invited to join in that fight — without glorifying war and death — at Pentecost. Jesus sends the Holy Spirit so that we may be bearers of the spirit of forgiveness, love, peace, and justice as we engage the sinful systems in our world. As our eyes are opened to the ways in which humans are seen as disposable in our society we bring God's reconciling love to the world. May you be swept up in the Pentecost spirit in the coming weeks.

Rev. Nancy Neal is associate for Denominational Women's Organization Relations at Bread for the World.
