Anglican Mainstream not so mainstream

Last weekend “Anglican Mainstream” held a highly publicized conference in the greater London area. Andrew Brown describes what happened, and makes it clear how little of the mainstream Anglican mainstream represents in England.

Including acolytes with special needs

Many Episcopal parishes are trying to be more intentional about including people with special needs into the full life of the congregation. One parish in the Diocese of Atlanta began by working out how to include a child who is blind and wheelchair bound. That decision has led to a broadening of the acolyte corp in the congregation which now includes a number of people with a range of challenges.

Musicals and messages

I think there’s a point in every person’s life where they have to walk away from something because it isn’t productive, isn’t safe or isn’t fulfilling. Sometimes they have to leave everything behind and travel light.
