Lent 1 Sermon for 8 am (instructional Eucharist at 10:30)

Just a few words and suggestions on where you should be early in this Lenten Season…. Our thoughts should be focused on examining the lives that we live. This sermon is very short – but very important – so stop all minds from wondering, and listen… Woe to the strong current of a corrupt custom (a habit): I tend to forget them myself. I intend to proceed as the words lie to me. We tell ourselves it is OK when we know that it is not. To change that corrupt custom, that bad habit We must first: To "turn," first; [...]

Continuing Church and Eucharist Theology Explained

Thursday, February 21, 2019 Article XXVIII and the Continuing Churches The Affirmation of Saint Louis (1977) is the foundational document of the Continuing Church.  The Affirmation distinguishes the Continuing Churches from earlier Anglican bodies, such as the Episcopal Church prior to 1976, which were vaguer and deliberately more ‘comprehensive’ in their doctrine and moral teaching than are the Continuing Churches.  The Affirmation also distinguishes the Continuing Churches from neo-Anglican bodies (such as the Anglican Church of North America, ACNA) and from modernist Anglican bodies (such as the Episcopal Church after 1976).  The Affirmation is the foundation of and is embraced by the 2017 agreement of the so-called [...]

She sought to return England to the Catholic Church and stirred rebellions by marrying a Spanish Habsburg prince. After taking the throne her ruling council was a mix of Protestants and Catholics, but as her reign progressed she grew more and more [...]

Confirmation (Adult) Manual – 2019 Part 1 of 10

Introduction: This Confirmation Manual is written in a conversational dialog which hopefully will make it readable.  We have tried to present the Anglican Faith in a manner which shows its beauty by allowing the mystery of God to be accessible enough to touch and love while at the same time laying down guardrails for examining and meditating upon the beauty of the mysteries of our Lord. First of all, who are we?  Well, I can answer for myself – I am a Christian who worships within the beauty of Anglicanism.  Our denomination speaks of the way we worship and our [...]

“And kissed him” – oh these words of pure deception always sends chills down my spine each time I read them – words of such betrayal that it exceeds my ability to fully understand their ugliness when used against one’s God…PART 2

(end of part 1) If I was a gambling man, I would bet that Judas was a prideful man.  Which way would you bet – prideful or not?  He seemed so sure that he knew what was best and when things did not exactly go the way that he imagined, he became an angry man.  This anger, as is usually the case, made the work of Satan much easier.  Judas convinced himself, which is easy to do when angry (you know how it works when we work ourselves up into a lather over something we often forget years later) and [...]
