Wake Up, O Sleeper, Rise from the Dead

My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to listen to your words, but they do not put them into practice. With their mouths they express devotion, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice. (Ezekiel 33:31-32)

Part of the problem with God's people both then and now is adultery, both spiritual and physical.....

Justin Welby calls for start to public inquiry into handling of Covid

"I think we are at the point where they could start doing it," the archbishop said. "If we ever have anything like this again, a national catastrophe on this scale, what do we do?"

He made the call on Tuesday evening as he met people bereaved by the pandemic at the Covid-19 Memorial Wall on the South Bank of the Thames opposite parliament, where more than 150,000 red hearts have been inscribed in memory of the UK dead. He was joined by Rabbi Daniel Epstein, of the Cockfosters and North Southgate United Synagogue, and Kazeem Fatai, Imam of the Old Kent Road mosque.

One Church of England diocese has spent £500,000 on 20 Non-Disclosure Agreements

At a recent meeting of the diocesan synod, a question about NDAs was asked. The answer was direct: "We do not use and never have used Non-Disclosure Agreements". But on further questioning it was admitted that confidentiality clauses were regularly used.

The Church of England's Imminent Death Brings Opportunities

"It depicts a church that appears to be dying," she said.

An Episcopal priest and expert on denominational demographics, Rev. Dwight Zscheile, responded to the same data by saying, "The overall picture is dire--not one of decline as much as demise within the next generation unless trends change significantly."

BISHOP SCOTT BENHASE AND THE LAW OF NON-CONTRADICTION

The bishop made a great start. He should have stopped right there. Sadly, he didn't. The bishop went on to elucidate that he bought into all of TEC's liberal positions, but in doing so he invoked the law of non-contradiction.

Archbishop of Canterbury Condemns Non-Disclosure Agreements That Hid Racism in the Church of England

Henry told Panorama she left her position last year because she was disillusioned and frustrated by the church's lack of progress on racism. She shared details of one case where a Black staff member filed a grievance after receiving a "deeply racist" image and left the church with "very small" compensation and an NDA after the church's human resources department ruled the image was not offensive, per the BBC.

Primates and bishops welcome Anglican Network in Europe

The purpose of ANIE said Bishop Lines was to give such churches a home and a hope as they took on the task of reaching out across Europe with the biblical gospel. A welcome was given to the new network by Anglican Primates of Brazil, Myanmar and Nigeria, Archbishops from Sydney and Nigeria, and Bishops from Chile and Tasmania.

Bishop William H. Love: the Once and Future Bishop

Knowing the bishop, I am sure he still feels the pain of rejection, the pain of not being able to serve the faithful who remain in the diocese, but his decision to resign also got Presiding Bishop Michael Curry off the hook not having to depose him or declare that he "abandoned the communion." Love's resignation was kind to Curry, a kindness he did not deserve, but he got anyway. But Love was and is the soul of kind and he left graciously without upsetting the Episcopal Church's applecart with protracted legal and canonical lawsuits.

Clergy speak out over 'racism in Church of England'

The Church of England is set to publish plans promising to address racism.

Last year, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, admitted that the Church had failed to tackle racism in its own ranks.

After seven years in her job, Dr Henry retired last year due to feeling disillusioned. "I felt frustrated by the lack of progress with issues of racism," she tells Panorama.

She says one incident from 2019 particularly stood out.

Anglican Church in Uganda urges Government to Support Anglican Investors

The bishop made the appeal at a ground breaking ceremony of a cooking oil factory being constructed by a Ugandan investor.

The factory under construction belongs to Anglican tycoon, Gusta Ntake.

In his speech as chief guest, he said that the Ugandan government is very good at welcoming foreign investors and offering them very good conditions in which to operate, but that local investors are left to fend for themselves. They should be given priority, he said.

PASTORAL CARE

Admittedly, as indicated above, traditional pastoral care was already on the wane before we were confronted with this most recent crisis.

I think this had something to do with expectations on both sides of the equation, that is, the expectations of those administering pastoral care, as well as the expectations of the recipients of such care.

Teesside church says it was closed down without consultation, as Free Church of England faces questions about 'missing' money

The Free Church of England (FCE) is a 19th century break away from the Church of England.

The FCE told Premier that the minister, Rev Jonatas Bragatto, was hired using money from selling the church building but that he did not revive the congregation (of less than 10 people) in two years enough to supply new funding for his ministry - and that funds were depleting.

EPISCOPAL DIOCESE OF FORT WORTH SEEKS FULL STATUS AS DIOCESE IN ACNA

In the Dallas area of North Texas, there have been numerous diocesan affiliations, including Churches for the Sake of Others (C4SO) and our diocese. After consultations with Bishop Todd Hunter and others, a draft petition (over Bishop Reed's signature) has been developed which has yet to be approved by the College of Bishops. However, some planning steps and bridge-building are under way. In accord with ACNA Canon 5 and Canon 12 of Title I, the proposal would establish a Missionary District of Dallas, to operate temporarily as a Deanery of the Diocese of Fort Worth.

Ravi Zacharias and the After Life

Here you will learn the true meaning of unmerited grace; grace that you felt you merited by indulging yourself with women and much more. Here you will deal with your narcissism, pride and ego, and your belief that My Father owed you something because you did so much for Him. At the root of it all is pride, that somehow you were owed something for services rendered. It was the great lie by you and for so many others.

Episcopal Priest-Scientist: Possibility "Mom doesn't like us best"

Conrad connects virtually with scientists around the country and at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California for several shifts a week, monitoring sensors that she helped design as they transmit data about the Martian environment. Among the instruments she works with are the cameras that have sent back over 25,000 photos, including Perseverance's first selfie, which shows the rover and the small helicopter that is expected to take the first-ever powered flight on another planet later this week.

The Church of England's racist plan to eradicate racism

The reform is one to be made to the Crown Nominations Commission (CNC), which nominates diocesan bishops to the Prime Minister, who forwards the names to the Queen: "The key proposal says a minority representative should join the commission as a non-voting member whenever a new diocesan bishop has to be chosen."

Anglican Diocese of the Living Word welcomes the Community of St. Mary, Eastern Province

Jesus Christ is Risen, Alleluia!

Yesterday, Mother Miriam, and Mother Superior of the Sisters of St. Mary, Eastern Province, announced that they have requested to be placed under the episcopal oversight of Bishop Julian Dobbs and have made the decision to register with the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word. Bishop Julian has joyfully accepted their request and asked you to welcome the Sisters in our mist.

THE PEDIGREE OF REFORMATIONAL ANGLICANISM - Part 2

Cranmer was a gentle and cautious man and his theological positions developed unhurriedly. He may have been somewhat slow and deeply thoughtful in forming his convictions, at least publicly, but, through his thoroughness, when they did take shape, they were sturdy. The Archbishop's conclusions were never rash and when settled they were reliable. His mind was well-suited to his nation's spiritual needs and tempo. His designs liturgically and doctrinally were eminently pastoral and suitably wise, and in balanced proportion for the flock that he diligently sought to serve.

ALBANY: Community of St Mary, Eastern Province Quits TEC for Anglican Church in North America

Bishop Love's recent trial put into sharp focus the reality of what happens when General Convention preempts a Bishop exercising his authority within his own diocese to uphold diocesan canons based on biblical principles and time-tested traditions of the Church. In leaving TEC and realigning with ACNA, the Sisters of the Eastern Province embrace a body whose values more closely align with their own, allowing their witness as Religious vowed under the Evangelical Counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience to continue to enrich the Church within the Anglican tradition.

The Great Awokening: Identity Politics versus Christianity

Mahoney said that the "facile relativism" and "toxic and coercive moralism" that characterize social-justice ideology conceals "expressions of the same underlying philosophy" -- the religion of humanity. This latest attempt at "a comprehensive transformation of the world" has its genesis in the philosophy of the anti-clerical positivist Auguste Comte, who in 1851 crowned himself the emperor of humanity in the Notre Dame cathedral.

Minorities should have a say on future Church of England bishops to improve diversity, leaders say

The move, which was influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement, follows a year of Anglican agonising over race.

Last year the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, compared the CofE's attitude to ethnic minorities with that of Nazi-era German churches to Jews +2

The authors said the BLM movement 'provides a particular context to the conclusion of our work and brings into sharp focus the issues of diversity highlighted throughout our report'.

THE CHURCH OF SOUTH INDIA IS PLAYING A "HIDE 'N SEEK" GAME TO KILL TIME SO THAT EFFORTS TO INVESTIGATE THEIR AFFAIRS ARE GIVEN UP BY THE UNION GOVERNMENT

The new Writ Appeal of 24 March 2021 from the CSITA is simply to prevent the statutory authorities of the Indian Government from probing into the misdeeds (illegal sale/lease of church assets, irregularities in financial management and astounding corporate misbehaviours and non-compliances to provisions of the Companies Act 2013) of the incorporated body called the CSITA (Est.1947).
