Online Worship: When is Fire Good News?

This Sunday we gather for Pentecost, a great sending out of the first disciples of Jesus. We remember this ragged band, previously sequestered in fear, whose mouths are suddenly opened by the coming of Holy Spirit in wind and flame. With fires raging in our cities and the horrific killing of George Floyd, it is crucial that we hear the truth pouring from open throats, raw with smoke. We must question whatever is comfortable for us and us alone, and yet again turn our hands and hearts to the tasks of justice. Together we will sing and pray, lament and rage and renew God’s direction in us.
