This afterword uses the Episcopalian Church’s Gody Play story “The Circle of Time” to survey the essays in the volume. It discusses the color scheme for time in Anglican theology, linking the synaesthesia of temporalized hues to queer eroticism and focusing especially on the red “heat” of Pentecost, incarnation of the Holy Spirit. Using the work of José Esteban Muñoz, the essay links the incarnational to the performative in queer theory, suggesting that the transmittal of affect may be divine in the theological sense, whether or not participants believe in God. It asks whether the incarnational, the performative, and the queer might be linked by transfers of being and becoming of the sort epitomized by the Pentecostal Holy Spirit and described in many of the essays.
