The "why"

The classic depictions of the Last Supper show John leaning on Jesus.  Usually asleep.  That's pretty amazing to think about, curling up next to Jesus. 

And the last thing you hear before drifting off to sleep?  The heartbeat of the One who looked at creation and said, “I know what this needs.  You.” 

It’s a beautiful thing.  And it's part of the "why" of Pentecost.

Pre-Pentecost, that’s only happening for one person at a time.  Too bad it has to be that limited. 

Post-Pentecost, it doesn’t have to be. 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Pentecost
