Article about woman who visits her autistic brother's church...which is Pentecostal

I really enjoyed reading this article...and being reminded how foreign our services are to newcomers to Pentecost. What a sweet experience this was...

Seeing a Smile I Had Not Known Existed
I never understood what drew my autistic sibling to the Pentecostal church. Then I went with him.

March 19, 2007 issue - Under the fluorescent lights and lazy ceiling fans of a Pentecostal church in Milwaukee, I watched my oldest brother crouch down and rest his head in his hands. He began to pray silently, moving his lips. Two pastors knelt alongside him and rubbed his back. They, too, began to pray. It was a remarkable sight, because our family is Jewish. Even more remarkable was the fact that my brother was allowing himself to be touched.

We need to see more disabled people feeling this comfortable in our churches.

I have prayed with 2 children with autistic disorders when they got the Holy Ghost.. One of them my son.... Thnx for brining awareness to the body of Christ that children with physical and mental challenges can be impacted and transformed by the power of God...
