Queerying Holy Trinity C

Rev. Emily E. Ewing queeries the reading from the Gospel.

John 16:12-15
Jesus said:
12"I still have many things to say to you,
but you cannot bear them now.
13When the Spirit of truth comes,
she will guide you into all the truth;
for the Spirit will not speak on her own,
but will speak whatever she hears
and will declare to you the things that are to come.
14The Spirit will glorify me,
because she will take what is mine and declare it to you.
15All that the Loving Parent has is mine.
For this reason I said that she will take what is mine
and declare it to you."

Queeries for the text:
Does Jesus have FOMO? Or is YOLO driving this speech?  Is YOLO even possible for Jesus?
What can't we bear?
How and why does truth matter?
What does the Spirit hear today?  Does she need to hear in order to comprehend?
Which possessions or people do Jesus and the Loving Parent hold in joint custody?
What things are to come?
What does the Spirit declare?
How will the Spirit glorify Jesus?  Did it already happen?  Will it ever happen?

What are your queeries?
