The Anglican Book of Homilies discusses the folly of prayer to saints in the Homily on Prayer. I have slightly cleaned up and modernized the language of a portion of this homily and offer it as follows: Thus you see, that the authority both of the Scripture, and also of Augustine, does not permit, that […]
Anglican Unscripted filled in the details on the forthcoming ACNA conclave. George Conger reports here that the conclave will happen after the March 12th consecration of Chip Edgar as bishop. The conclave is scheduled to take place at the St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center on Seabrook Island. Archbishop Beach wants 90 percent of the […]
It turns out that my suspicions about the lack of a press release from the College of Bishops meeting were correct. Anglican Unscripted reported on this over the weekend. Among other things, they said: There are rumors that some churches within C4SO no longer want to be associated with ACNA. Ten to twelve C4SO churches […]
As I write this post, there has been no press release from ACNA regarding the meeting last week. I find this odd, particularly in light of all the problems that exist right now. Canon Phil Ashey wrote an email summary of the meeting for the American Anglican Council, and I will paste that in here […]

James Moorhead mentions an encounter that Robert Willett had back in World War I: …he encountered an energetic man who explained […]
The Synod Of Laodicea In Phrygia Pacatiana Canon XXXV – Notes NOTES. Ancient Epitome Of Canon XXXV. Van Espen.
While talking to Bart Gingerich about sexual misconduct cases in ACNA he mentioned another case from the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin. A priest named Jesus Antonio Castañeda-Serna was accused of sexual misconduct and arrested on February 24th 2019. The Fresno chief of police said: The Diocese put out a statement that said: Disturbingly, Castañeda […]
