We belong to the Anglican Church of North America, a church committed to being a church in which three streams of religious practice come together and enrich the people of God and enable the working of God to become present to the world. Today we celebrate the Sacrament of Eucharist, which draws from that stream we call sacramental, leaving here we are called to share our faith with others in that stream we call evangelical and today, on this feast of Pentecost, I want to share about that stream we call the charismatic stream.
First let me tell you a little of my life history and how I became immersed in that stream. I grew from Infancy to my teenage years in a proper Roman Catholic family. My mother was Roman Catholic from birth and my father a convert from the Reform Church (though I always suspected that he held on to some of his Protestant beliefs.)
