Pentecostalism constitutes a genuine type of religion we can label as play. In order to identify the particular elements of this type, we can make use of Erving Goffman’s frame analysis to organize Pentecostal theological activity and to construct from an analysis of everyday experiences visible in Pentecostalism a primary framework of activities oriented around the transformative encounter with the Holy Spirit. The sequence of activity involves a primary and overlapping pattern of Pentecostal spirituality, experience, narrative, affections, practices, and embodiment. Demonstrating that play is not exclusive to Pentecostalism, but that Pentecostals manifest a particularly visible form, demands greater attention both to Pentecostalism as a religious tradition and to play as a theological model.
