The 2016 Society for Pentecostal Studies Convention in Review

John Goldingay

On Friday, John Goldingay delivered a moving plenary address on “The Holy Spirit and the Psalms”. He shared of his early despising of the Psalms and only through suffering the loss of his first wife did he come to see the Psalms for the impassioned prayers of the saints and offering the words of the Spirit as life-giving. He will be posting this paper at his website: http://infoguides.fuller.edu/content_mobile.php?pid=190354&sid=1596614

Sadly, I lost my notes from the remainder of the meetings, but can conclude by noting that this meeting was inspirational to my own work on the Spirit and its further reflection (as an example here is my paper presented there on Thursday morning in the Biblical Studies Interest Group: When Prophets Play the Lyre: Saul and the Strings of the Spirit). I was challenged by the many papers (as usual) and blessed by the Spirit in which the meetings were conducted and the fellowship that was woven throughout. I was particularly blessed by the closing banquet where there was a memorial for R. Hollis Gause (which moved me to tears), honoring of Murray Dempster, Byron Klaus, and Doug Peterson (their contributions to Pentecostalism), and joining together around the Lord’s Table ministered by newly elected Second Vice-President – Rev. Dr. Mark Cartledge.
