How Does the Act of ‘Speaking in Tongues’ Contribute to a Theology of Place?

This paper attempts to define how the practice of ‘speaking in tongues’ regulates a place to develop a framework that adheres to an act of free expression, a preliminary that requires space to exercise interplay upon the concept of the Spirit. This idea necessitates a place to construct identity, security and a sense of belonging.
