the Wind

So here we are in the church year getting ready to celebrate and mark Pentecost. The wind of the spirit that blew through the people...because it was so helpful to have an image that people could underwstand...flames...something real and tangible that would relate to people.
And then today, a big Oklahoma storm came blowing thru. It was pretty exciting. I was at church with Joan and we watched the clouds come up over the trees really dark and then wow the wind started blowing. It was still before and then the winds, some say at 65 mph, came flying through. The rain and the hail came from several directions. We finally got a warning sirene when the winds and the hail looked to be a problem. We made it thru but apparently we hear that there are lines down and the storm is heading East.
Looking at the winds we understand here the power they have. The trees bending and yielding to survive. To resist is to break.
The wind of the spirit is coming. Let it be for you a joy complete.
God abides
