I live in the darkness of my own little world, it seems, since I was totally unaware of this video greeting from Pope Francis to the charismatic Word of Faith community (read that Kenneth Copeland). I have long been aware of the ecumenical nature of the charismatic movement, often creating affinities between denominations stronger than those within a denomination. But I had no idea that such was on the radar of the papacy.
Anyway, for those who are interested, Kenneth Copeland and his group were meeting and the Pope extended to them a very heartfelt and encouraging greeting. What is surprising is that such a greeting would have been extended to a group only on the fringe of Christianity when there are others with whom Rome has much more in common who might have been better candidates for the papal salutation. But you are free to disagree with me and to watch (it comes a little more than 30 minutes into the video). It is, well, interesting, to say the least! As Copeland put it, "if you are not on fire after all that has happened, your wood is wet..."
