Almighty God, we your children pray: let your glory come down.
Let the Fire fall on us gathered here as on that first Day of Pentecost.
Revive our spirits, fill us with new excitement, with joy unspeakable
And compassion for a dying world.
Empower us to speak your Word; to utter your words of Life;
Using a variety of languages to bring the good news to the poor.
Lord, let your fire fall once again on this church, on this community,
On this country, and on all the families of the earth.
In Jesus name and in the power of your Holy Spirit. Amen.

In the late 1960ís and early 1970ís the Charismatic
movement swept the United States. A great deal of time and attention was paid to
how we define the church. The church is not the building at the corner of First
and Main or the time set for services.
The church is the people who are called
by God into fellowship. Ekklesia, a Greek word that means those called out of.
Called out of the world into a fellowship with God and one another. We are a
church which is faithful people who gather weekly to worship and to serve God.
The people gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost were biblically literate,
faithful folk who had come to the most holy city in search of an experience with
God. Some place names and nationalities may not be familiar to us, who are the
Medes? Others like Arabs jump out at us, Arabs? The list is even stranger when
we consider that all these people were Jews and converts to Judaism. Jewish
Arabs? This sounds like a contradiction in terms. These people listed are the
Jews of the Diapora, the dispersion of God's chosen people through out the known
world. God prepared a seed bed of God's word in the known world by sending His
people into all the cities.
We don't think of Jews as being evangelical people recruiting
folks into the family of God. They were evangelical in the two centuries before
Jesus came. Righteous Gentiles came to the synagogues seeking truth and light.
Some converted to Judaism which is not easy to do...
