On the Day of Pentecost, God’s Spirit was poured out on followers of Jesus in a dramatic, visible way, with tongues of fire and ecstatic inspired speech. This was interpreted as the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy from Joel, where God through the prophet says: I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. Even upon my slaves, both men and women, in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy. Through the gift of the Spirit God still inspires dreams and visions of a better world. May we take those dreams and visions seriously, trusting that by God’s love and power, positive change will come! Come Holy Spirit, fall afresh on us.
