PENTECOST FIRE
(Acts 2:1-21)
by Andrew King

A
new
kind of
fire, and
new speech
brought to voice:
words that are flames
through walls that divide;
language that’s praise sung
in harmonies of the Spirit;
inclusive vocabulary of love.
Drink deep the new wine of
freedom, all slaves. Dream
as equals, world’s sons and
daughters. See the visions
of the kingdom of peace.
Wherever wind blows
the Spirit will flow:
the fire that
quenches
our
thirst
for
God’s love.
