    The Naval Officer Trope in Austen’s Persuasion 

    The portrait of an American naval officer is at the entrance of our church, Lt. Commander Norman R. Milbank. He was born in Alberta, Canada  but faithfully served in the United States Navy during WWII and the Korean conflict. He went on to have a full career in business including as the bursar at Stanford University and founded Canterbury School in 1974 where he served as Headmaster until 2009.

    Recently I read through Jane Austen’s Persuasion and couldn’t help notice how Naval figures were used as symbols of idealized men. We...

    Ray Sutton’s Defense of Paedo-Communion

    An excerpt from Bishop Sutton, (Reformed Episcopal Church, ACNA):

    “The church is to do no less than Christ when it comes to admitting people to the new covenant feast. If adults need food to grow, so do children. If adult believers require spiritual sustenance to mature, so do children. This is part of the blessing. They are not to be forbidden from the holy food of God.

    The Lord’s Supper is “way-bread” for the believer’s journey in this world. J. R. R. Tolkien communicates this sacramental principle through the metaphor of way-bread...

    Peter Hallock’s connection to Canterbury School

    Many of my “liturgical arts” friends know of Peter Hallock (November 19, 1924 – April 27, 2014) through his choral music published through the compline choir at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle, Washington.

    As we were waiting for a wedding to start yesterday, I was describing our recent Choral Evensong service to our Deacon Patrick Milbank. Patrick replied, “Mom used to go see Uncle Peter perform sung services like that up in Washington.”

    Mrs. Milbank – the wife of our founding Rector was born Matilda Hallock and her brother is the famed...

    James B. Jordan wanted to be Anglican

    Back in 1980, James B. Jordan (Biblical Horizons, Theopolis Institute) had just finished his studies at Westminster Theological Seminary and was working alongside Ray Sutton (now Presiding Bishop of the Reformed Episcopal Church) and Dr. Gary North in Tyler, Texas at Westminster Presbyterian Church. Sutton’s Church left the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and eventually became Good Shepherd Reformed Episcopal Church in 1987.

    Based on their departure from the PCA, Jordan was investigating where he might be ordained. Jordan wrote to the founding rector of my parish (St. Paul’s Anglican...
