Anglican Tidbit: Bookplate of Frederic S. Fleming, Rector of Trinity Wall Street

Below is an interesting artefact: the bookplate of the Rev. Frederic S. Fleming (1886-1956,) Rector of Trinity Wall Street from 1932 to 1951. The book it came from was The Divine Liturgy by Herbert Luckock, which I reviewed here.  Given his High Church inclination, I'm sure it was a favourite. His signature in the book …

The Sad Case of Knoxville’s Catholic Bishop, Rick Stika

It's getting complicated: I went to Knoxville at Bishop Stika’s invitation. The Pillar reported last month that the Congregation for Bishops in Rome had received complaints about Stika’s leadership in the Knoxville diocese, and was considering initiating an apostolic visitation, or investigation, in the diocese. The complaints, which came from both priests and laity in …

A Young Episcopalian Writes About Pentecost

My last year in Church School was in sixth grade, after which I "graduated," first into youth choir and then as an acolyte.  For that final year our teacher got the idea for us to put out a "newspaper" (the Jerusalem Daily News, obviously a take-off the Shiny Sheet) which might have been put out …

As Sanders herself notes at the start of Jacques Bénigne Bossuet: A Study, “Yet in England, notwithstanding the widespread and increasing appreciation of French …

Anglican Tidbit: A Bulletin from 1938

From time to time I'll present what I call "Anglican Tidbits," which are little things from the.  Since North American Anglicanism has had an influx of people with little or no heritage in the Anglican world, I think it would be useful. The first one is a bulletin from Trinity Episcopal Church in New Orleans, …

The Baptists and WO: It Isn’t About Authority, Albert Mohler

Mohler opines in a lengthy piece on the subject: In truth, the issue of women serving as pastors fuelled the Conservative Resurgence in the SBC. The question was instantly clarifying. The divide over women serving in the pastorate served as a signal of the deeper divide over the authority and interpretation of the Bible. Simply …

Renewing Your Faith: The Aftermath

In the last post, I gave a book review of Donald Connolly's In a Holy Year, Renewing Your Faith: An Anthology of Spiritual Readings.  I promised I'd give some life reflections on this, and this is the fulfilment of that promise.  This book is more than just a book: the anthology compiler was my first …

Renewing Your Faith: The Book Review

Ever wanted to spend time with someone who impacted your life but is now gone? As we see the annual odometer spin ever faster, that desire becomes more common. For Christians, we have the assurance that we will see those people who were likewise committed to Christ once again on the other side. But the …
