I knew it was right, though I did not understand it

"The first day in the meeting I sat to myself, away from those that went with me. I began to thank God in my heart for all things, for when I heard some speak in tongues, I knew it was right though I did not understand it. Nevertheless, it was sweet to me".--C.H. Mason

I've never been to a Pentecostal meeting in which people speak in tongues, which I suppose surprises me a bit, because my sister turned Pentecostal in her thirties. But I certainly read a good bit of poetry and see a fair amount of art that makes me realize that people have paths to ultimate reality so very different from my own.
