Today is the Day of Pentecost

With signs of power, – of wind and flame,
the promised Holy Spirit came:
Astonishment, bewilderment:
these Jews who from afar had come,
could hear these simple Galileans
now speak of wonders God had done:
in their own language, each one heard –
by miracle, – foretelling sign
that this divine redemption Word
was meant for every people, nation;
the Spirit had been sent to dwell,
equip and strengthen, bring conviction –
and many would accept salvation:

that day 3000 came to faith,
a world-wide church had come to birth.
Acts 2:1-41
