Spirit of the living God, visit us again on this day of Pentecost.

Come, Holy Spirit.

Like a rushing wind that sweeps away all barriers,

Come, Holy Spirit.

Like tongues oof fire that set our hearts aflame,

Come, Holy Spirit.

With speech that unites the Babel of our tongues,

Come, Holy Spirit.

With love that overlaps the boundaries of race and nation,

Come, Holy Spirit.

with power from above to make our weakness strong,

Come, Holy Spirit. Amen

OPENING MUSIC: “Sweet, Sweet Spirit” #304 UMH (sung twice)

OPENING PRAYER: Perplexing, Pentecostal God,

you infuse us with your Spirit, urging us to vision and dream.

May the gift of your presence,

find voice in our lives, that our babbling may be transformed into discernment and the flickering of many tongues

light the unquenchable fire of compassion and justice. Amen
