We headed out bush to the Gembrook Retreat for our Pentecost evening prayers. In a little hesian lined hut with no electricity we prayed together by lantern light, the room aglow with candles. Following prayer we headed to the bonfire to make chai tea, heat our dinner, chat and paint flags with images and symbols of Pentecost to some world beats. On a cold wet night it was nice to be outside, warmed by the fire, a symbol of the Holy Spirit's life giving warmth.
