Liberal Protestantism is a veritable clown show.  (A sanitized version of another kind of show.) That will be the look on her face, by the way, when she sees the Son of Man coming with the clouds of heaven. And then there's the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America ..read more

Is Fr. Patrick J. Schlabs Taking a Shot at Fr. Calvin Robinson?
The Old Jamestown Church
by Embryo Parson
1M ago
I was ordained a deacon with Fr. Schlabs back in 2014 when we were both in AMiA.  He would go on to ACNA and become the "Canon for Cultural Engagement" in  the ACNA's Diocese of South Carolina, and I would go on to serve as a healthcare chaplain and a priest in the Anglican Continuum. I don't know quite what to make of Canon Schlabs' comment here, but on the face of it, it does appear that he's taking a shot at Fr. Calvin Robinson, who is a priest canonically resident in the Nordic Catholic Church, but whose DNA is Anglican of the Catholic variety.  And it must be noted that it ..read more

S.M. Hutchens on Calvin Robinson and the 2024 Mere Anglicanism Conference
The Old Jamestown Church
by Embryo Parson
1M ago
"Mere Anglicanism, according to the group’s website, is 'an organization of Anglican Christians seeking to engage the culture with the Gospel of Jesus Christ by discipling, training, and educating lay and clergy leaders for the renewal of biblical and orthodox Anglicanism.' Thus, this group would be supposed to stand against progressivist corruptions of present-day Anglicanism, including those involving the sexual confusions in which it is entangled. At the group’s recent gathering in Charleston, South Carolina, one of the invited speakers was Fr. Calvin Robinson, who, after giving his paper ..read more

Mere Priestesses

"Controversy surrounds the disinvitation of Fr. Calvin Robinson from the closing panel of the Mere Anglicanism conference held in Charleston, South Carolina, in January. Asked to lecture on the topic “Critical Theories Are Antithetical to the Gospel,” Robinson argued during the main session that the spread of critical theory in the church was inevitable given the church’s acceptance of feminism, with women’s ordination being a decisive concession: Confuse men’s and women’s roles, and it’s hard to resist liberalism tout court. The sponsoring bishop and conference organizers found Robinson’s pre ..read more

Trad Worship Has Become Cool Again
The Old Jamestown Church
by Embryo Parson

From Fr. Mark Marshall.  A must read. "Still, one of the arguments for modernizing worship and the use of Christian sacred spaces is to be more relevant to emerging generations.  But that is backwards, and the kids know it.  If the church waters down its worship and becomes more like the world, it becomes less relevant and less attractive.  The world is already much better at being like the world than the church — although God knows most of the Western church is trying to catch up.  So how is the church being like the world relevant?  Especially during times like ..read more

Rosaria Butterfield

I have only recently heard about the writings of Rosaria Butterfield. I'm going to have to read more of her.    Wake up, AMiA, ACNA, and the rest of you Neo-Anglicans.  The historic Catholic and Anglican faith is inescapably patriarchal and not in any way feminist or even egalitarian, and when you ordain women to the ranks of clergy, you commit a horrific act.  Her bio: "Rosaria Butterfield, a former tenured professor of English and women’s studies at Syracuse University, converted to Christ in 1999 in what she describes as a train wreck. Her memoir The Secret Though ..read more

What Happened To The Asbury Revival?

*This.* I said *this* from the get-go.  Here's my archive.  From the article: It’s been a year since the beginning of the Asbury “revival” in Wilmore, Kentucky. Last year, from February 8th to February 24th, up to 70,000 people visited Asbury University’s chapel to experience what they called an “outpouring,” an “awakening,” or a “revival.”  For two weeks many of the tens of thousands of people who visited Asbury responded to alter calls and witnessed “prophecies”, “speaking in tongues”, “casting out demons”, and “faith healing” at the chapel. It was one of the biggest news st ..read more

Meet ACNA Bishop Todd Hunter and the Mission Viejo Screamer

This audio clip comes from a recording done at Mission Viejo Vineyard in 1994, when Hunter was the National Coordinator of Vineyard Churches.  Spend a few minutes listening to this carefully and then read the commentary at YouTube site hosting the clip. This, folks, is the modern charismatic movement, and it slithered under the door of American Episcopalianism and the Church of England back in the 60s and 70s.  From there it made its way into the so-called "Anglican Realignment":  The Anglican Mission in America (AMiA), the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and other "Thre ..read more
