A post for my Pentecostal friends and family…
It was 1906
People in Topeka and Los Angeles were looking for… something.
What they found at the Apostolic Faith Gospel Mission on Azusa Street in Los Angeles – tongue-speaking, ecstatic experiences, alleged prophesying and divine healing – gave birth to the modern Pentecostal movement.

It was 1979
I was 16, and I was looking for… something.
For the previous two years I had been becoming more and more aware of what some call the “God-shaped hole” in my soul. I had also recently learned what God’s “peg” was: the gospel.
