I can’t thank DC Comics and Kenner toys enough for helping me develop a narrative imagination.

It’s Pentecost, but what does that mean? What in the world is a tongue of fire? Why do we call this the birthday of the church? Does God change at Pentecost? What is the difference between the Greek and Hebrew thoughts on Heaven? How can the writing of Rabbi Roland S. Gittelsohn help us to understand Pentecost? All this plus a medley of Pentecost hymns by Rick Lee James on this week’s episode of Voices In My Head.
