Kenneitih L. Pagard of Chula Vista, Calif. "It's like elec- Mcity. It's dangerous stuff, but if rightly used, it's a great power for good." What, another asked, is its main purpose? "It is primarily a gift of pow- ear for the ministry. It is to mien and women face to face with the reality of the living God." The Rev. Mr. Pagard, 38, coordinator of the American •Baptist Charismatic Fellowship, was talking about an unusual spiritual activity now sur- gimg within most denominations. Protestant and Roman Catholic.

God is diOilng a big thin>g today," the Rev. Mr. Pagard said in an interview. "It's going to. have a real impact in renewing the churches." The movieimenit cuts across denomaaatioinial lines, often involving ecumenical groups on campuses and in local communities, as well as many individual pairishies and pastors, Lutheran, Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian and other mainline churches, whicih shunned it as an .chanaobedstic of smaller-Pente- Costel groups. The tongues-speaking is "only one part of the package and a min'or part," said the' Rev. Mr. Pagaird, pastor of the Chula Vista's First Baptist church where the "gift of, the Spirit" has led many familliss to open their homes to others, in the communal pattern of original Christanifty. "In our ' efaurich, we hardly ever mention tongues-speaking," he said. "It's commonly accepted, but it's primarily for use in private devotions. It's direct spiritual communication, from our spirit to God." Howiever, the "tongues" aspect has drawn a disproportionate ^amount of public attention because of "vague fears" of the odd and unifiamdl- iar, he said under quesitiondntg at sessions of the recent American Baptist Convention here. "People today are afraid of anything supernatural," he said. Buit, someone asked, didn't St. Paul wairn against it in First Cormtihians 14? "Indeed, he did warn against its abuse," the Rev. Mr. Pa- giard said. "He saw that siome were overdoing it 'ill church'— that's the qualifying word. "But in the same passage, lie also said he wanted all believers to speak in tongues in theiir devotions,, and said he was thankful that he did so more llhan any of them. Modern Christians wear 'blinders' against those points." The Rev. Mr. Pagard said the "Spirit" experience was a "normal part.dl Chrisitian life" from the beginning—'and not an exceptional thing. " intended for ail Christians as a normal condition," he said. "But the church today is in.- an abnormal condition. The main thing wrong is that it lacks the real presence of the Holy Spirit operatinig in power." The original maniifestaitiofi of it, as described in Acts 2, came with ithe outpouring of the Spirit ait PenAecost, imbuing the apostles with courage and persuasiveness.
