I am so excited about this group a friend just told me about. Pentecostal Charasmatic Peace Fellowship. From their mission statement:

“Our mission is to encourage, enable, and sustain peacemaking as an authentic and integral part of Pentecostal-Charismatic Christianity, witnessing to the conviction that Jesus Christ is relevant to all tensions, crises, and brokenness in the world. The PCPF seeks to show that addressing injustice and making peace as Jesus did is theologically sound, biblically commanded, and realistically possible.”
Their website says they’re only 300 strong internationally at this point, but let’s pray the fire grows and gets stronger!

It only makes sense that Pentecostalism does not have to be co-opted by the agenda of the religious right any more than does any other segment of Christianity. I’ve been reading all the stats about the new global south and the Next Christianity (Philip Jenkins book, Sojourners article “Ready or Not”) and since us Westerners are on the way out anyway, don’t it make sense to pass the Justice on to the real players?
