June 30 2022 By dvirtue A godly response to the overturning of Roe v Wade

Yet to our rejoicing can I suggest we add a few other things.

The first is reflection. Here can I suggest the need for all of us to recognise that we are dealing with sensitive and painful matters in which great hurt has often been experienced. Many women silently bear deep mental scars over an abortion and so any triumph must be seasoned with grace.

June 27 2022 By dvirtue A Play in Three Acts

And because of your love, not only of your husband, and of your daughter, but for all of humanity, you decide that you should become an ordained minister of the Gospel. And nothing says love of humanity so much as taking the cloth and serving as the substitute for the God-made-man who lay down His life so that we all can have new life in the God who created love and who has loved us so much that He sent His only Son to teach us His way of love.

The Ugandan, Nigerian, and Rwandan primates are boycotting Lambeth 2022. Other provinces may well do the same. There is uncertainty as to the precise size of these three churches.

June 22 2022 By dvirtue A WORD TO NEW BELIEVERS AND SOME OLD BELIEVERS AS WELL

It made sense. If I was to grow, I needed to apply myself to doing Christian things. I had no idea, however, just how long that "to do" list of things is! It could fill a book - it does fill books, all the things I needed to do.

June 19 2022 By dvirtue Trigger Warning: The Episcopal "Church" isn't a Church

First, some background might be helpful. The Episcopal Church began its slide decades ago when it began exchanging truth for cultural acceptance. Traditional doctrines on issues such as homosexuality, or whether Jesus meant what He said when He proclaimed "No man comes to the Father, except through Me" were abandoned. A more culturally palatable "church" was being built, one where homosexuality wasn't a sin; in fact, priests were ordained who were openly homosexual.

Peter & Paul had burned down in in 1921), the Diocesan Center shares washrooms, meeting rooms and a counseling center with the consecrated space, connected by a walkway.
