The Path to Pentecostalism

If you're doing it right, and you do it long enough, concentrating on sacramental theology leads to pneumatology - which is bizarre. Who would have thought that constantly (if not obsessively) meditating on the physical things of our faith, water and bread and wine, would lead to seeing all of the life of the Church (of the World) as participation in the life of the Spirit (as well as the life of the Son)? Not me, at least. But now, I do. I can't help myself. Everything is pneumatology. (Though this could simply be because everything is about everything.)

Or it may have something to do with all the Kline I've been reading over the last few months.
