Holy Spirit 101 (Part 1) – BREATHE 1, with Dr. Jack Levison


About the Holy Spirit 101 Video Series:  17 words into the Bible, the Spirit of God hovers over a murky chaos. 113 words from the end of the Bible, the Spirit invites everyone who is thirsty to drink for free. At the start and finish of the Bible—Genesis 1:2 and Revelation 22:17—the Spirit is there, bringing order to chaos and satisfaction to people with parched throats. From beginning to end, the Spirit is active, yet we know so little about the Spirit of God. Not any more! Spend some time in the presence of the Spirit—studying, questioning, wondering, learning. With our Bibles in hand, we will explore the unknown but not unknowable world of the Spirit
