    Unit Lay Reader

    • 701 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Over my 26 years of service in the Coast Guard I’ve had the opportunity to serve in many capacities: as a subordinate to service leaders, as a rescuer during search and rescue missions, as a law enforcement officer interdicting the smuggling of illegal narcotics or enforcing federal fisheries regulations and now as a lead engineer responsible for directing others in the maintenance and operation of equipment aboard a 225 feet buoy tender. As rewarding as many of these opportunities have been, few compare to the opportunity to serve as Unit Lay Reader; a voluntary position responsible for providing worship opportunities and discipleship training to fellow shipmates while at sea. After serving in this capacity at three different units I have come to realize not only the benefits of helping others grow in their relationship with our Savior, but also the benefits of individual growth, personal accountability and achievement through perseverance. Each of these lessons plays a vital part in pursuing an education in Biblical Studies at Colorado Christian University. First, the benefit of helping others grow in their relationship with our Savior is an end-goal benefit. Scripture provides us with instruction to fulfill the “Great Commission.” As simple as the Gospel Truth is, there are many questions raised that challenge the importance and validity of the message. Pursuing the associates program in Biblical Studies at Colorado Christian University would provide a greater foundation…

    Other characteristics of Pentecostalism are evangelism, spontaneity, direct communication with God and divine healing (Cooper 2011, Poloma and Green 2010). Additionally, Pentecostalism is defined by its mystical features of glossolalia (speaking in tongues), prophetic dreams, and being called or summoned by God to preach (Cooper 2011, Pitts 2012). Historically, these distinguishing factors have proved salient for Pentecostal women who desired to preach. For women utilized the religion’s mystical…

    pneumatology lacks the direct speculative racial supremacism which orders much of his theology, he demonstrates coherence in his use of xenolalia as the pneumatic norm for racial control in rejecting Seymour and the glossolalic practices of the Azusa Street Mission. The first sections of the paper elaborate these workings, what might be called Parham’s Jim Crow pneumatology. Focusing on the way racial power is in the making of pneumatological doctrine has further ramifications. I attend in the…

    In addition, the Spirit empowers people to do a mission and gives them prophetic speech. Menzies confirms that the relation between Spirit baptism and speaking in tongues is a question of systematic theology. Since none of the Jews that were baptized with the baptism of the Holy Spirit recognized that glossolalia was the first evidence to prove the baptism. The doctrine of evidential tongues is treated in the categories of biblical theology. Fee’s arguments challenged Pentecostals. However,…

    When I was a young child, I went to a church in Southern Alabama, where my family lived.

    James D G Dunn notes: “The epochal significance of Pentecost raises the whole course of salvation-history to a new plane ….In one sense, therefore, Pentecost can never be repeated - for the new age is here and cannot be ushered in again. But in another sense Pentecost, or rather the experience of Pentecost, can and must be repeated in the experience of all who would become Christians.” Dunn is effectively saying that in order to witness for Jesus Christ today, just as the disciples…
