It’s Like Breathing

May 21, 2013

Even when tornadoes bring havoc and death, words still mean something.

Yesterday in this space I asked if we should call this after-Easter-time by the name Pentecost Season or Ordinary Time; our United Methodist way of doing things allows for either one.

Thank you for contacting me in the variety of ways you did with your answers and commentary.  (And thank you, Janet, for being brave enough to post yours.)

It seems many of us like the idea of combing the concepts behind the two words Pentecost and Ordinary.

As if Pentecost is Ordinary.

As if it’s Ordinary to be Pentecostal in the fullest sense of those words.

As if Christians being empowered by God’s Holy Spirit is as normal and necessary in daily life as breathing.

It is.

Right now in Oklahoma and worldwide, some of God’s Ordinary people are at work putting Pentecost power into making a difference.

You and I can help, too — check out options at

It’s normal and necessary for us to do so as Ordinary Pentecostal followers of Jesus.

It’s like breathing.
