  1. I am a Pentecostal Pastor bur but I grew up Presbyterian. A few years ago I found myself missing responsive readings and the catechism. I thought it was my form of mid-life crisis. I am not where near as far as Glenn but I slip in the Lord’s prayer and the Apostles Creed. I also wear a stole on occasion on the big holiday’s, when serving communion and baptisms. I love being part of a Pentecostal church but I think we have lost a a lot of the good historic traditions. I hope I can slowly bring them back.
