Nothing wrong with wearing red on Pentecost.

But if no one

-gets filled with the Spirit

-speaks in tongues

-accuses your members of being drunk at 9am in the morning

-gets converted (there were 3k on Pentecost)

…then we need Linus to get up on stage and read us the Bible story (which he does so¬†well for Christmas) to remind us of what Pentecost is really all about.

As with much of the high-octane faith in the Bible, we have de-natured it for “polite” church use. Instead of calling down fire from heaven, we wear red sport shirts.

Veni Sancte Spiritus
