Here on Turtle Island, the Holy Spirit Is a Coyote

This is a guest post by Tim Van Deelen, Professor of Forest and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison

I recently came across an evocative meditation suggesting that the Holy Spirit is like a coyote, hidden, mysterious, ever present. There is a lot of food for thought in this, I hope that you will take the time to read it and contemplate it.

Our North Shore theologian Zoomed in from the edge of the wilderness on Wednesday night. She told us with an eye-twinkle, that she had located the Holy Spirit shape-shifting among the world’s tricksters, drawn from the world’s memories. Moving in the borderlands mostly out of view, knowing your moves in the second before you do and playing with mischief. Here on turtle island, the Holy Spirit is a coyote.  (Tim Van Deelen, Professor of Forest and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, The Reformed Journal, March 22, 2021)
