Every episode has been for us a gift of great conversation with deep spiritual leaders in the Wesleyan/Arminian tradition, and we end the season with the best of the best — Jack Deere. Author of “Surprised by the Power of the Spirit” and the revised and recently released “Why I Am Still Surprised by the Spirit,” Jack shares his own journey from a successful ministry in a cessationist tribe — a theological stream that assumes the supernatural phased out with the apostles — to being someone who could say that healing ought to be a significant part of a church’s ministry. He shares about his ministry partnership with John Wimber, the relationship between miracles and suffering, and what it might look like to go after the power of God and the work of the Holy Spirit. If you want to be inspired toward more love and more power in ministry, this episode is for you.
