I spent some time with a friend the other day who is a little older than me.
He told me of his experiences in the early days of what was known as the renewal movement.
His church was opposed to the gifts of the Spirit and those who wanted to know more were forced to meet in secret and discuss such things.
Eventually people began to leave their evangelical churches and form new charismatic churches. He was involved in one locally, almost from its inception.
What was it like? "Like being in heaven". That's what he felt.
I guess sometimes we take our Pentecostal / Charismatic heritage just a little bit for granted.
