Reflecting on Acts 2: 1-11
They were all gathered that day in one place,
Peter, and Andrew, and She Full of Grace.
Like a mighty wind, just then the Spirit descended,
The Age of LIFE started, the Age of Law ended.
The Age of Grace poured out, in tongues as of fire.
And so filled, whatever their Christ would require
Became their great joy, their mission, their Moment,
With power they named our Despair their Opponent.
Our sadness, our shame, our losses, addictions,
Our too-tiny tremblings of too-small convictions,
They roared with the Spirit, we still hear their voices!
In memory of them the earth still rejoices.
For God is not tiny, not helpless, not buried.
The Resurrected One was the Christ who they carried
Out to the world, to its remotest parts,
To hold us, to heal us, to DWELL in our hearts.
How do you live in Pentecost strength?
