Assemblies of God at the Crossroads

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!
