This chapter discusses communication with God. It analyses a range of activity that is understood this way in the Vineyard, from simple prayer, to reading Bible verses as a form of ‘personal communication,’ to being contacted by God directly through voice or vision. It addresses how saliency, exteriority, and most of all surprise function as variables that make these events intelligible as supernatural communication, and as something that exceeds, divides, and reconfigures the will. Finally, both typification and elaboration, processes that constrain the expressions of the charismatic diagram, are introduced.
