December 02 2022 By dvirtue Anglican Frontier Missions, DOMA Churches, and the Global Missions Initiative: A Profile of Partnership

After World War II, Protestant mission organizations began proliferating with the unfortunate side effect of nestling the locus of global missions to frontier unreached people groups away from the congregation and into the hands of "mission professionals."

I was reminded of that phrase, "deal with but don't dwell on" in the last few weeks as I've read our American Anglican Council (AAC) posts and Canon Phil's excellent reporting from the Lambeth Conference. I'm grateful that the AAC had our team on the ground to fight the good fight.

May 25 2022 By dvirtue My Anglican Journey -- by Sunita Theiss

I attended almost every week and had several emotional, formative experiences. But eventually, I stopped attending. It was causing conflict with my family, and quite frankly, I did not understand or realize how difficult it is to reorient a life around Christ, especially when it felt diametrically opposed to the way I had been living.

"We did some outside services, parking lot services, changed the way we do communion, the way we take offerings. No more passing things between people," he said. Last summer, they even borrowed a circular horse trough for outdoor baptisms, held Bible studies under the trees, featured an outdoor movie night, and like most churches, turned to live streaming services for those not attending in person.

The Ignite Conference seeks to answer the difficult questions currently facing the church. Today's secular society often elevates government and the rights of the individual over God and the rights of Christians to worship and teach freely.
