Fire in that Water by Raymond A. Foss

The Pentecost flames, in the water of baptism,
the Spirit stirring the waters, charged, elemental
transforming waters of the Spirit, descending, landing
filling us, our own lives, our spirits, growing, strengthened
emboldened, empowered, to speak with power
to share the message, in words we do not know,
to walk humbly, differently, filled with that redeeming Spirit
to be Christ in this troubled land, this world of hurt
feeling the fire in that water, flowing through us
changing us forever, out of the boat,
out onto the waters with Christ
with boldness of the Spirit
spreading God’s love
