Déjà vu all Over Again with Ralph Martin

He's done another video in the wake of the "unearthing" of Michael Scanlan's prophecies: https://youtu.be/bOcLUeEOvD0 Let's be honest, Ralph: we've been here before.  And you dodged the serious question that never seems to change. Back in 1982 you wrote a book entitled A Crisis of Truth, where you documented the drift from both Biblical truth …

In the Footsteps of the Warden: Reflections on The Rev’d Septimus Harding — The North American Anglican

A few days ago I finished The Chronicles of Barsetshire, a six-book series by Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope, for the second time in as many years. An immediate personal favorite, I was introduced to the series by Anne Kennedy’s blog and podcast, Preventing Grace. For those unfamiliar with the series, all six books take place in… …

The Virginia Bishops and Classical American Anglicanism — The North American Anglican

In January of 1800 Rev. Dr. James Madison, Bishop of Virginia, wrote his cousin, James Madison Jr. The former hailed the congressman and “Father of the Constitution” for his past work on the basic law of the still-new American republic. “You have really swept the Augean Stable; at least, you have cleansed the Constitution from… via …

The West’s monumental crisis — UnHerd

In 1998, the urban planning student Mohammed Atta handed in his masters thesis at Hamburg’s University of Technology. Examining in depth the architecture of Aleppo’s historic Bab al-Nasr district, Atta’s thesis presented a picture of the human-scale “Islamic-Oriental city,” whose winding cobbled streets, shaded souks and alleys carved from honey-coloured stone had been violated by… via …

There’s Still Time for Justin Welby to Hand the Anglican Communion to the Africans

He's agonising over the statues: Justin Welby said monuments would be looked at 'very carefully' to see if they all 'should be there'. In a wide-ranging interview, he also urged the West to reconsider its prevailing mindset that Jesus was white, and pointed to different portrayals of Christ as Black or Middle Eastern in different countries. …

On Liturgies, Shapes and Texts — The Porcine

Recently I read both Samuel Bray’s piece over at Ad Fontes, and Rev. Ben Jefferies’s piece over at The North American Anglican. Both present different schools of thought regarding Anglican liturgy, and I recommend you read them both. I did notice, however, that several people interpreted Prof. Bray’s essay as arguing that a. no deviation… via …

Tolkien’s mythic plan for England — UnHerd

On a family holiday in Yorkshire in 1925, J. R. R. Tolkien’s young son Michael lost a beloved toy on a large stony beach. A long search by Tolkien, and Michael’s older brother John, proved fruitless; to console the boy, Tolkien made up a story, Roverandom. It’s an odd tale, featuring a small dog, wizards,… via …

Another Scanlan Prophecy, and How Did Ralph Martin Get to #straightouttairondale?

Ralph Martin has posted a follow-up to his broadcast of Michael Scanlan's prophecy: https://youtu.be/-R2b_45nBJI There's a lot to unpack here. First, much of what he says is fine.  One of the things I've tried to do is to discourage people from leaning too hard on the benefits of the civilisation (such as it is.)  The …

The Story of Our Hymns: There Is a Fountain Filled with Blood — Anglican Compass

This is the third of a series on sacred hymns, the story behind them, their text, a recording, and a simple companion devotional. “God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, and rides upon the storm.” ~William Cowper Every Hymn Has a Story William Cowper was… via …

Now St. John’s Episcopal Church Feels the Wrath of #BLM

From Twitter: St. John’s Church has been vandalized with spray paint reading BHAZ (Black House Autonomous Zone) pic.twitter.com/8D7UITVTK0 — Richie🎥McG🍿 (@RichieMcGinniss) June 23, 2020   Evidently the protesters look at the Episcopal Church as it is and not as it would like itself to be.
