The essay is about Langston at the age of thirteen who goes to his aunt's church to
experience the act of being saved and receiving the Holy Ghost; however, Langston is not saved at his aunt's church. Hughes aunt had told him what to expect when you are saved.When you are saved, you see a light and something inside you happens. She said you could feel Jesus in your soul.
