I am aware that this past Sunday was Pentecost, but I think that it is important to spend some time discussing Bishop Charleston’s understanding of Easter and resurrection before we go much farther along. My discussion is based on Charleston’s book The Four Vision Quests of Jesus. Bishop Charleston is a Native American who spent years looking for the connection between his Native faith and Christianity. His understanding of Easter, the heart of the Christian faith, is that it is an everyday affair in which we form personal relationships that free us from violence and establish freedom and love for each other. Resurrection opens our vision so that we see each other more clearly in our everyday relationships. Something that the day of Pentecost brings home for we are divided by our differing languages.
