Beyond Sacramentalism: The Church as the Public of the Holy Spirit (or why I am still a Pentecostal Charismatic)


I'm looking forward to helping lead and present at the Society of Vineyard Scholars, later this week. My own paper explores and compares the two trajectories of a) post-Church ecclesiologies and b) the sacramental turn being made by many Evangelicals, as responses to critiques of Evangelicalism.  Or to put it more simply, this paper explores why I remain a Pentecostal Charismatic, instead of making the turn out of the church completely, or the sacramental turn back into the Church.
