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.
feeling the feelings…
