When each person is exercising her gift, she becomes an initiating center of life. When we confirm a person’s call to this segment of the Church, we say by that confirmation that we will be instruments in calling the person forth in her totality. The one who joins assumes that same responsibility for all the other members of the community. This covenant is implicit in the celebration of commitment of each new member.
The Church of the Holy Spirit is full of variety. Sameness and conformity are the demands of alien spirits.
