I’m new to Facebook, and I’ve just started a new group called “Assemblies of God Progressive Theology.” This group is
dedicated to reframing the theological and practical Pentecostal distinctives of the Assemblies of God for the 21st century.
If you’re in Facebook, and you’re interested come and join.
Fearful of incurring the wrath of the Grand Lord of Biblioblogdom, I have been hesitant to overtly mention my ecclesiastical affiliation on this blog. Still, I cannot deny my true identity. I am . . . (brace yourself) . . . a Pentecostal, and . . . (gasp) . . . a member of an Assemblies of God church.
Anyway, the Assemblies of God General Council will be held August 8-11, 2007 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Recently Rev. Thomas E. Trask stepped down from his position as the General Superintendent of the denomination.* So, this year’s meeting is particularly important, as we will be choosing a new General Superintendent.
The gravity of this situation has caused a few blogs to form. Both Future AG and AG Leadership Change are worth checking out if you’re curious.
I write this post to express our need for prayer.** The AG needs wisdom in choosing who will fill this important position.
PS: I reserve the right to speak tongue-in-cheek. If we can’t laugh about doctrinal differences, then we are taking ourselves too seriously!
