Celebrating God's Rambunctious Spirit
Those early disciples are all together in one place. In that Upper Room.
Praying. Hoping. Waiting. Then it happened. God's wild, restless, rambunctious,
untamed Spirit comes on the wings of rushing wind and flames of fire.
The wind and fire burns deep in the hearts of some ordinary, everyday
people. Now they are filled with God's breath, God's fire, God's love,
God's Spirit, God's life. It is the very same Spirit which filled and
flowed from Jesus. The disciples feel themselves to be, beyond their wildest
dreams, the Christ for their day. So, Christ's Body is born a second time.
This time Christ's Body has a face and eyes and hands and heart like yours
and mine. Ordinary people made extraordinary by Pentecost Spirit.
