#101 Embracing the Holy Spirit with Fr. Dave Pivonka

In this week's show, I talk with Father Dave Pivonka. He is an author, speaker and President of Franciscan University. Fr. Dave is well known for his series, The Wild Goose, which helps you discover a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit. I recently saw Fr. Dave speak in Pittsburgh at The Magnificat Conference. His love of the Holy Spirit is contagious through his honesty and deep faith life. 

In this show, Father Dave and I talk about what life can look like as you give the Holy Spirit the reigns to your life. It can sometimes be scary and uncertain, but Fr. Dave shares how before anything else you must open your heart to the love of God the Father. It is through this love that you are encouraged and equipped to go where God leads you. 

As you listen to the interview, discern how active the Holy Spirit is in your life.

Do you allow the fire of the Holy Spirit to burn freely in your life as trust his lead or do you try to tame it and keep it under control out of fear of what might happen? 

Here is a link for Fr. Dave's new series, My Father's Father.
