Praying in the Spirit: Better Than I Was, Not Better Than You Are

Praying in the Spirit: Better Than I Was, Not Better Than You Are

The fifth chapter of the Praying in the Spirit Series. “You Pentecostals think you’re better than anyone else, don’t you?” The question startled the young Florida pastor attending his first ministerial association meeting.

Praying in the Spirit: What They’re Saying Now: Some Non-Charismatics Reevaluate Tongues

The first chapter of the Praying in the Spirit Series. Bow-tied waiters glide across the plush red carpet. Sharply dressed gentlemen and elegantly appareled ladies devour crispy bacon, spicy sausage, and fluffy scrambled eggs. The smiling couple beside you probably has a college degree or two.
