Wind Cave National Park: Spirit
We begin our road trip on Pentecost Sunday with Wind Cave National Park. Native people believe this to be a
place of great spiritual power. Lakota Tribes referred to the wind as Maka Oniye, the earth is breathing. And
the idea of breath and wind have associations in many religions with that which is sensed but unseen. Today
we remember that Jesus breathed on the disciples, calling them forward to the future God had for them. The
wind blows, the Spirit blows us toward that which is sacred and good.
