Documentary 'Holy Ghost People' (1967)

Interesting little curio on a church in Scrabble Creek, WV. I’m not a religious person, but I think I could really get into *“speaking in tongues,” being “slain in the spirit,” and just all around whoopin’ and hollerin’. This looks like fun. About the only noteworthy 'tongue-speaking" occurs about 9:40, although there are a couple of fleeting moments later on.

This doc doesn’t identify anyone, but it looks as though the person who appears be leading the congregation is one Elzie Preast (1919-2003).

*I’m no Biblical scholar, but most of the references to ‘speaking in tongues’ seem to imply ‘speaking other languages’ as opposed to spouting meaningless syllables.

Well, then, get to it!
