Wind and Fire

Gebhard_Fugel_PfingtspredigtHey person, I’m still trying to figure out what those weird animals are you’ve been hanging out with all week.

I’m not ready for another Bible story.

If I listen will you tell me about the weird animals?

What do you mean, I have to take my chances?

But last week Jesus went up into heaven.

Isn’t the story over?

Okay, I’m listening.


When the day of Pentecost came, the disciples 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.


We had wind here today.

Do you think it was the same wind that blew on us and them?

I am listening.


They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.


Somebody better get the fire hose!

What do you mean, listen to the story?

Are you going to get the fire hose, person?


All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.


Did the Holy Spirit get the fire hose?


Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking in his own language.


I bet some of them could even speak to dogs.

Yes, I’m listening.

I think I hear someone speaking my language.


Utterly amazed, they asked, “Are not all these men who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them in his own native language? Parthians, Medes, and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs – we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!”


I wonder if the dogs from all those places speak the same language?

I am speaking – I mean listening.


Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”


I bet if all those people could speak to their dogs it would all be explained.

Stealing My Rocks

Thunder Mountain behind smokeThere has been some real mischief going on around here this weekend.

Someone is trying to steal my red rocks.

I looked outside and they were slowly fading away.

They came back later in the day, but whoever was after them must be really persistent.





Because the next morning they were hardly there at all.

Sedona rocks covered in smoke

I don’t know what I’m going to do.

Without my rocks this place won’t be the same.

Look at this!

Sedona Rocks covered in smoke

My person says there’s a fire and it’s the smoke that’s stealing the rocks.

Well, that must be some pretty mischievous smoke.

I’ve never heard of such a thing.

I hope all those firefighters that are fighting that fire can capture all the smoke and send it away.

Because what if that smoke tries to steal something more than my rocks?

Bongo faded out

Like meeeeee!

Where there’s Smoke…

Bongo in his kennel chewing on his frogHey, how come I don’t get to go?

That’s not fair.

That big camera always wins out over me.

It’s not like I’m gonna break your camera or anything.

I won’t yank on the leash and pull you over on top of the camera.

Besides, if you fell on your camera wouldn’t it be your fault?

So what are you taking pictures of?


That’s not very interesting.

You should be taking pictures of me.

There’s a fire?


You can’t leave me in dog jail if there’s a fire.

What if I get stuck in here and I can’t get out?

Those cats would leave the house without me.

You know how they are.

Are you sure it’s not that close?


Okay, I’ll look at the pictures.

Coffeepot Rock with smoke in the distance

Yeah, I guess it is far away.

But what if it comes closer?

Smoke from fire in the distance

See, I told you this was gonna come closer.

Let me out of this dog jail and grab onto my leash!

I’ll protect you.

Oh, and leave your big camera at home.


P.S. My person says we are safe from this fire, but asks for prayer for the people who have been evacuated from their homes, and for all the firefighters who are fighting this fire. This is the Slide Fire in Oak Creek Canyon in Arizona between Sedona and Flagstaff.

Gray Skies – No Clouds

Smoky SkyThe sky is gray today, but there’s not a cloud in it. I don’t get it. I thought clouds were what made the sky gray. How can it be gray without clouds? Did somebody wash out the blue?

The mountains are kind of faded out and the red rocks aren’t as red. What’s going on?

I’ve never been to any of those places, but I heard that in Los Angeles, or Tokyo, or Mexico City sometimes the sky does the same thing. Maybe all those tourists we get here turned the sky gray with all their vehicle exhaust.

What? There’s what causing that gray sky?

Smoke? Where would smoke come from?

Fire? What fire? Is it coming here? It’s not going to burn up my trails, is it?

Whew! My person says the fires are a long way from here.

What about the people where the fires are? Do they have any dogs that need help? I wouldn’t want any dogs to get in the way of those fires.

Oh, that’s good. All the dogs have been taken to a safe place. But the dogs and the people had to leave their homes? I wouldn’t like it if somebody made us leave our home. Maybe we should let all the dogs stay with us. That would be awesome. All those dogs here at my house. We could have a dog party. Wouldn’t that be fun, person?

I think I’ll go out right now and leave a message for all those dogs, letting them know that this is where they’re supposed to be.

Hey person, can you get my leash?

Hey person, where did you go?
