Pneumatology thereby attempts to account for divine presence and agency in the world, understood comprehensively to include its natural, cultural, social, institutional, interpersonal, dimensions. The Christian belief that God is no respecter of persons (Acts I 0.34) - regardless of race or ethnicity, gender, social standing,
religious affiliation, or geographical location - and that the Holy Spirit is being poured out universally (Acts 2.17), means that whatever else we as human beings might be up to, we do not live apart from the Spirit of God nor can we escape her (cf. Ps. 139.7-16).
