The challenge in Pentecost


We saw the challenge.
People thought we were drunk.
Not surprising really,
And in a way we were.
Out of our heads with God.
And if they had heard the wind, saw the fire, experienced the filling,
They would understand.

We talked about it later,
In days of pain and prison,
We returned to that moment,
And that jab from the world.
A reminder:
Not all heard Jesus gladly,
Not all were healed,
Not all believed.

But Peter preached,
As we still preach,
For the harvest is promised,
For the Kingdom is assured,
For the sheep will be gathered.
