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.

Pentecost is one of those Christian holidays few people
can explain off the top of their heads. Unless you're a Pentecostal
believer, people usually scratch their heads and come up with all kinds
Christmas is about the birth of the Christ. Good Friday
is about Christ's Crucifixion. Easter is about Christ's resurrection.
Easy enough. But what exactly is Pentecost?
Answers vary. Some say: it's the birthday of the Church
(but Church didn't really form until much later). Other say: it's the
arrival of the Holy Spirit (but wasn't the Holy Spirit present before
Pentecost?) Still others say: Pentecost is Christ's second coming (well,
at least in terms of the arrival of the Spirit of Christ).
All of these answers along with a host of others have
something theologically important to say about Pentecost. But they are
also quite different and so it is easy to see why Pentecost is one of
those complicated holidays that people can't really explain with one
Well, this morning, I want to highlight one of the most important
aspects of Pentecost. I don't intent to to complicate things even more,
but would rather like to point to a central truth of the Pentecost
Pentecost is about Breaking Down the Walls in the
Name of Christ....
