Thank you and praise the Lord for the letter of Miss Olwen Gwynne-Jones (August 10). I too am a great admirer of your paper, but would echo her plea for more articles/ letters on spiritual and supernatural ideas and events.
For instance. on Saturday.
August 3, at the Central Hall, Westminster, there was a marvellous Christian event and an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. but not a word of it in your paper. This was a Christian happening, a Day of Renewal for all Christians without any denominational barriers.
The two preceding issues of the Herald carried advertisements of this and, thanks be to God, I was able to attend and considered it to be a grace in indeed. To be amongst a crowd of some three thousand people praising God and praying as Christ commissioned us to do was very uplifting indeed — truly a lifting up of the mind and heart to God.
"Make it your first care to find the Kingdom of God. and his approval, and all these things shall be yours without the asking" (Matt. 6, v. 33). How do we find the Kingdom of God? — By Prayer, and we have Our Lord's Prayer as the supreme example, to set us off on a wonderful journey. Miss Gwynne-Jones says that the Charismatic movement is not for everyone.
But this is a movement of the Holy Spirit: the charismatic renewal is for everyone. Who can refuse the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. the third Per ron of the Blessed Trinity? This is just what the whole world needs today and it is there for us to ask for, to pray for, to thank God for.
