    Recently, a parishioner requested a book table which got me thinking about what to include.

    Here’s what I decided to buy for our Parish Book Table:

    Knowing God, JI Packer (Affiliate link)

    Outline of an Anglican Life, Tarsitano

    Signed Sealed and Delivered, Sutton

    Monkhood of All Believers, Peters (Affiliate link)

    Although the institution of monasticism has existed in the Christian church since the first century, it is often misunderstood. Greg Peters, an expert in monastic studies, reintroduces historic monasticism to the Protestant church, articulating a monastic spirituality for all believers.

    As Peters explains, what...

    In 1861, Bishop Cummins delivered a sermon in Philadelphia, in behalf of the Bishop White Prayer Book Society, and in 1867, after he had been consecrated to the Episcopate, as Assistant Bishop of Kentucky, he preached before the Convention of that Diocese that same sermon, rewritten, with additional matter. 

    “Again, we claim this high position for the Prayer Book because it is committed to no human system of theology, but is broad enough and comprehensive enough to embrace men who differ widely in their interpretations and definitions of Scriptural truth.

    “Tomorrow” in memoriam Dr. Gary North

    “Tomorrow” in memoriam Dr. Gary North


    For years I would ask Dr. North a question and he would simply reply “Tomorrow” – which meant he was going to think it over and give me a full answer the next day. He encouraged me, challenged me, and even berated me from time to time.

    In times of mental darkness, Dr. North had the ability to set me straight and refill my soul with hope. His “by 20-30-40” remains an essential part of my “adult metrics.” (link “Three Milestones”)

    Years ago, when I was lamenting the hurdles of...

    RNS Quotes: On Indian Christian Persecution

    A press release published in the Religious News Service (RNS) entitled, “Californian clergy coalition prays and speaks for persecuted Indian Christians” quotes me with the following:

    “The great moral evil that will be remembered in the year 2022 is the persecution of the millions of Christians in India,” declared Fr. Steve Macias, a priest in the Reformed Episcopal Church, as he joined fellow clergy-members to raise awareness about the escalating persecution of Indian Christians. “The religious persecution that many Christians refuse to look at, refuse to pay attention to, refuse...

    American Anglicanism Began in California

    American Anglicanism Began in California

    The New World was discovered a short time before Dr. Martin Luther lit the spark which started the Reformation on the Continent.

As each new territory was explored, the area was claimed for both the country from which the explorer came, and for the established Church of that country.

    South America was claimed for Spain and the Roman Church; Canada and the Louisiana territory were originally claimed for France and also the...
