The disciples where gathered together in an upper room praying and waiting. Suddenly a burst of wind rushed into the room and flickering tongues of fire appeared on everyone’s heads. As the pastor described to us the scene of Pentecost this Sunday I was reminded of the hot air balloons I had just seen the day before. I had never been so close to one. Even though we had some distance the burst of fire-wind into the balloon was suddenly hot and the sound was a blast like rushing water. I’m sure the fire from heaven as the Holy Spirit anointed his people must have caused such a combination of joy and shock.
