In the days of protest, riot and rage over police violence against black people and the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Tony McDade and many others, we gather for Pentecost.  We call on the Holy Spirit to come with power.  We call on the Holy Spirit to burn and breathe in us as we kindle a fire under white supremacy in ourselves and in our systems.  We remember that the Spirit breathes within us and within the bodies of black folks even to their last breath.  #blacklivesmatter
