1: The 'Toronto Blessing' : What Was It and Why Did It Happen?
It is twenty years since many churches in the UK experienced a phenomenon that came to be known as 'The Toronto Blessing'. Thought by some people to be a work of the Holy Spirit, people experienced strange and bizaar manifestations such as shaking, uncontrollable laughter and being 'slain in the Spirit'. What was it? What differences did it make? What legacy has it left behind? These were some of the questions that were addressed at this Conference.
This session, addressed by Chris Hand is the first of four. In his remarks he mentions a video that can be viewed on Youtube, should you wish to do so the link is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_P5B5Brz_lc
