This article offers a constructive exploration of Eastern Orthodox liturgical pneumatology’s potential contributions toward the development of Pentecostal liturgical theology. It highlights two main themes: the organic continuity between word and sacrament as a proclaimed and ‘choreographed’, communally-enacted theology; and the catechetical significance of ‘visualized theology’ or ‘theology in images’ within the context of worship in the Spirit, constituting the life of the church as a continual Pentecost.
