On Pentecost Sunday the citizens of Jerusalem and the thousands of pilgrims from the four corners of the Roman empire were amazed, perplexed and astonished hearing a sound like a mighty rushing wind, maybe tornado–like. When these pilgrims heard the disciples – these unlearned bumpkins from Galilee – speaking about Jesus in their own native languages, they very well may have facepalmed themselves and asked each other “What does this mean? What’s going on here?” Little did they realize it was the Holy Spirit descending on the disciples, birthing the church and equipping it ministry.
