The Day After Pentecost

Our pastor was full of metaphors yesterday.  He said, "The Holy Spirit doesn't come like a box from Ikea with stick figures showing us how to be Church."

He also said the Holy Spirit is not a breakfast cereal; it's not the same with every spoonful.  We're never sure what we'll get from spoonful to spoonful.

I was full of strange Pentecostal connections myself.  It's Pentecost, and the Bloodmobile is here.  We're talking about the Holy Spirit, and some of us may be looking ahead a day to Memorial Day.  I felt haunted by spirits of all kinds.

Perhaps I'll write a poem or two.
