from Church Members:
bonding with God: I was five years old. And I was sitting in the
front pew at Friendship. The Reverend was preaching. For some
reason, I could see a glow around his head. I couldn't believe
my eyes. I was in awe. Then, all of a sudden I couldn't sit still.
I was hot. My mom said, 'Why are you squirming?' I said, 'Mom,
I can't stop. I'm burning up.' It felt like something was all
over me. Every part of my body was just tingling, and I could
hear the voice of God saying, 'Do you understand what is going
on with you?' I really didn't hear what the Pastor was preaching.
All I could feel was the bonding, this communication between me
and God. -Reverend H. R., 32 years old
