The presence of the Holy Spirit is the keystone of all our hopes.

Henry B. Eyring
Each atom of the Holy Spirit is intelligent, and like all other matter has solidity, form, and size, and occupies space.
I have assumed my clear commitment to a Trinitarian orthodoxy was sufficient evidence that I have not intentionally ignored the role of the Holy Spirit. It may be true, however, that my work has been so Christ-centred, I may have given the impression that the Holy Spirit is an afterthought.
