Charismatic Leaders Fellowship 2020

This year I did not give a formal presentation, but was invited to give a three minute talk on my newly published work, Aging Gracefully With the Graces of Healing Prayer (Lexington: Emeth, 2019),[9] which I gladly obliged. Last year several members of the CLF asked me to bring a few card stock models for their kids and grandkids, as I had done four years ago. I obliged also in this “sacrificial” ministry of model building and delighted in giving them away, to both the CLF members and to the staff of the Alleluia school where I deposited a fine model of the Hubble telescope and another of the Di Vinci flying machine.

All in all, this was one of the finest and most informative CLF meetings I have ever attended, and I believe many others felt the same way.

[Editor’s note: A preview of the 2011 reprint of Nine O’Clock in the Morning from Bridge-Logos is available here. Read also D. William Faupel’s “Touched by the Wind: The Charismatic Movement in the Episcopal Church.”]

[2] They are not original to the modern era. Count Zinzendorf of Saxony (Germany) established a covenant community on his family estate in 1722, called Herrnhut. Most were Moravian Protestants, but the community was open to all denominations. From Herrnhut the world’s first Protestant missionaries were launched. [Editor’s note: For more about the revival sparked by Herrnhut, see Charles Carrin’s articles, “The Holy Spirit Never Left the Church” and “Herrnhut: A Caribbean Shrine You Need to Know.”]
