Abstract

The relationship between religious activity within a Pentecostal congregation and the emotional status of the congregants is described. Data derive from a field study conducted in a Newfoundland coastal community. The more frequently people engaged in religious activities, the less likely they were to report symptoms of emotional distress. Significant within‐group variation was found in terms of the frequency and type of religious activity. 1980 American Orthopsychiatric Association
