Becoming a New Kind of Charismatic: Entering into the Life of the Spirit with as Little Baggage as Possible



Your sense of the Christian story, whether you are conscious of it or not, determines your view of the person and work of the Spirit. For instance, in a story about going to heaven when you die, we need atonement, the Father then grants it through the Son. But what role is there for the Spirit in such a story? None—or optional at best—a denominational consumer choice. But if we take the statements of Jesus serious in the Upper Room Discourse of John, and if we want to follow Jesus into the reality depicted by those teachings, we must learn an ongoing, conversational relationship with the Holy Spirit. Todd and Tammy will help guide you into such a “safe and sane” way of doing so.
