“Holy Tongues of Fire Batman!”

This might have been Robin’s comment if he had seen the miracle of Pentecost. In the story there are two kinds of tongues.

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” (Acts 2:1-11)
The Holy Spirit first filled the room, and then filled each of the people in it. There was the sound of rushing wind, and then what looked like flames of fire, that separated and rested on each one of them.


Communion….Why Is It So Weird?

I was raised in the Lutheran church and though there are many similarities between the Lutheran and Methodist way of doing things, communion is not one of them. In my church, we were not allowed to take communion until 4th grade after attending some classes and gained a basic understanding of what communion is and why we practice it. 

It’s funny that baptism is treated so differently. No conscious awareness needs to be present there…but that’s another post.
