Abstract

1 Where Do We Go From Here? It has been suggested many times in recent years that classic Pentecostalism and its sister in the Historic churches, charis- matic renewal, are at a crossroad. Pentecostalism has arrived at this point some eight or more decades after it first erupted in the US, having made some movement from a religion of the store- front, tent meeting, and brush arbor, to a position of reasonable respectability , glamorous Christian Centers, and ever increas- ing institutional power. Charismatic renewal, in the assessment of Richard Quebedeaux as described in his book The New Cha- rismatics II (San Francisco: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1983), p. 239 "had 'run out of steam' by the late 1970s - but not out of abiding significance." To be at a crossroad is not necessarily bad. It, in fact, offers ample opportunity for one to assess past experience, to take stock of present strengths, weaknesses, and resources, and to plot future direction. To be at a crossroad and not to take the opportunity for reflection and self evaluation is to miss a pre- cious moment for continued growth and a chance to make informed decisions.
