Is The Episcopal Church Really coming apart?

Conservative Bishops in the Episcopal Church take a page out of the American Revolution!.

Here is a news release that explains it in simpler terms..

Meanwhile GAFCON is doing most of the heavy lifting as far as trying to save Anglicanism.

Gafcon Recognizes the New Anglican Church in North America.

Gafcon also reminds the Anglican communion who is in charge.

The Episcopal Church just keeps suing people.

Ft. Worth Diocese is sued by Episcopal Church.

But some bishops take a more biblical approach.

Church Spotlight of the Week

I was blessed to be able to attend Easter Service at my church this Sunday, and my priest, Father Chip did a commendable job on the sermon. But I want to draw your attention to Fr. Jurgen Liias, rector of Christ Church in Hamilton, Mass. He is the best priest the Episcopal Church never talks about, and you absolutely need to hear his Easter sermon.

Sex and the Church

When I came across this website while reading Christianity Today, it stopped me dead in my tracks. I had heard men talk about Internet porn, but this was the first time I had heard a women talk about her experiences. This is a must watch.

MEDITATION OF THE DAY

The book of Acts mentions a Mark, or John Mark, a kinsman of Barnabas (Col 4:10). The house of his mother Mary was a meeting place for Christians in Jerusalem (Acts 12:12). When Paul and Barnabas, who had been in Antioch, came to Jerusalem, they brought Mark back to Antioch with them (12:25), and he accompanied them on their first missionary journey (13:5), but left them prematurely and returned to Jerusalem (13:13). When Paul and Barnabas were about to set out on a second missionary journey, Barnabas proposed to take Mark, but Paul thought him unreliable, so that eventually Barnabas made one journey taking Mark, and Paul another journey taking Silas (15:36-40). Mark is not mentioned again in Acts. However, it appears that he became more reliable, for Paul mentions him as a trusted assistant in Colossians 4:10 and again in 2 Timothy 4:11. The Apostle Peter had a co-worker whom he refers to as “my son Mark” (1 Peter 5:13). Papias, an early second century writer, in describing the origins of the Gospels, tells us that Mark was the “interpreter” of Peter, and that he wrote down (“but not in order”) the stories that he had heard Peter tell in his preaching about the life and teachings of Jesus. The Gospel of Mark, in describing the arrest of Jesus (14:51f), speaks of a young man who followed the arresting party, wearing only a linen cloth wrapped around his body, whom the arresting party tried to seize, but who left the cloth in their hands and fled naked. It is speculated that this young man was the writer himself, since the detail is hardly worth mentioning if he were not. Tradition has it that after the death of Peter, Mark left Rome and went to preach in Alexandria, Egypt, where he was eventually martyred.

PRAYER OF THE DAY: Almighty God, who by the hand of Mark the evangelist hast given to thy Church the Gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of God: We thank thee for this witness, and pray that we may be firmly grounded in its truth; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
