Tomas Ball BarrattWhat can we learn from our pioneers on Norwegian soil? Let me present for you the man who was the strongest role model of them all, perhaps because he was in the first line. Thomas Ball Barratt was a man who came to influence Norwegian and European Pentecostalism for 35 years. He was not even Norwegian, but I can promise you that he loved Norway more than the majority of Norwegians did. Let me concentrate on the first 10 years after he had his existential experience of the Holy Spirit’s power and direction. I’ll just give some reflection about what I prefer to call the later Barratt as distinct from the early Barratt.
