Frequently neglected in pneumatology are the cosmic ministries of the Spirit. We tend to think of the Spirit as an ornament of piety rather than as the Lord and giver of life. We have the opportunity to change that in this age of scientific cosmology. This study will develop seven perspectives on the theme. We begin with the muscular and heavy lifting work of the creator Spirit and proceed to other topics such as the Spirit’s participation in divine trinitarian life and its groaning with creation in the birth pangs of new creation. We also discuss a creation as preveniently graced, Spirit Christology—the fruit of it—and the consummation named the eschatological fruits.
