When they learned the gates were open,
certain keepers were dismayed.
Called the porter to explain some
poor decisions he had made.
He described a trance he’d fallen
into while up on a roof,
In which he had thrice been challenged.
That was all, and that was proof.
How upon an invitation,
God had told him, “time to go.”
In a house he met a man who’d
seen a recent angel show.
As he spoke the Holy Spirit
fell on all who’d gathered there.
So it was that they were baptized.
God is present everywhere.
