Raymond A. Foss Poems

Tongues of Fire! by Raymond A. Foss
Imagine the scene,
cloistered in their room
safe from authorities
Jewish and Roman rulers,
powers that would destroy them
No, they were safe for the moment
from these earthly powers

Tongues of Fire, of flame
burst from heaven, resting, penetrating
piercing their souls, their beings
Infusing these timid followers
Sheep became shepherds
quiet fishermen now orators
arguing, proclaiming, fighting
to be heard, to share the Good News
Holy Spirit, burn on, strike our hearts
with your flames, burn bright in us
through us, sharing still the message
the truth of the risen Lord

May 28, 2007 14:20
Acts 2:1-21 – The first Pentecost,
the birth of the Church
