Tongues of Fire: Pentecost, Pluralism, & The Power of Malcolm X

The story of Pentecost in the Christian tradition tells of how the apostles, following the death of Jesus, were suffused with power from on high to prophesy. All were suddenly able to speak and be heard regardless of language barriers. It is in a similar vein one might consider the prophetic power of Malcolm X, one of the great sons of Omaha whose righteous anger and zeal for justice resonated across lines of religion and race to highlight the evils of oppression and helped illuminate the pathways of freedom.

On this Sunday where many threads cross, let us seek such tongues of fire for ourselves; the ability to speak our hearts and be understood and to harness our convictions for the greater good. The challenge of pluralism is the challenge of real freedom, not just for a privileged few but for everyone. Are you ready?
