"Embrace Your Inner Pentecostal"

Greetings:

There's an intereting article in Christianity Today Online titled "Embrace Your Inner Pentecostal," by Chris Armstrong. The focus of Armstrong's article is the influence Pentecostalism has had on main-line faiths--not just in modern worship but in the inner faith journeys of individual Christians.

He argues that Pentecostalism is anti-modern--in fact post-modern--in its experiential emphasis. He also claims that Pentecostalsm encourages the early-Christian practice of "Eudaemonism," or happiness in the faith.

I thought we might be interested in this argument because Pastor Gene's current sermon series is on the joy-filled book of Philippians. For the next few weeks we'll be talking about happiness in the faith.

Best wishes,
Mason Smith
