Sunday 8th June – Pentecost A

Spirit hovering
over the deep before time
breathe in me this day

Spirit in the breath
and word of the Risen One
breathe in me this day

Spirit inspiring
in dancing flame, sound of wind,
breathe in me this day.

JOHN 20:19-23
The Teacher’s death
was a blow to his disciples
that crucifixion Friday
and so was his empty tomb
on the first day of the week.
Yet later that same day
a softer blow —
the breath of the Risen One
blowing on them
and in it
the Holy Spirit.
