Brittany Smith reports that more than 1 in four Christians are charismatic or Pentecostal (there is a difference) and the movement is growing.
The portion of the post that caused me to chuckle:
Interestingly, in the United States, the Hartford director pointed out that the Pentecostal and charismatic movement is spreading among middle class Americans – a phenomenon that has puzzled many academics.
Well, this academic is not puzzled. Any Christian movement that reflects vitality and hope and a cause will attract people, charismatic or otherwise.
This Mainline (non-Pentecostal, but Charismatic) Methodist prays that the movement will spread. More Christians from any tradition is something to embrace.
