The Baptism of John and the Baptism of Jesus Christ

In the Communion Gospel this Sunday from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, we have this in part: And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom …

And Who Are Our Betters? A Sticking Point From the 1928 Book of Common Prayer

Most frequent visitors to this site know that I was raised on the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and in general am a fan of same. But it has issues, and a Twitter post pointed out one of them, which comes from the Catechism, in theory given to all those which seek to be confirmed. …

George Conger’s Renunciation

That's probably not how he would characterise his absence from the race to become Episcopal Bishop of Central Florida, but that's what it amounts to: It is ironic that George Conger, a Central Florida rector who attempted to become the Bishop of Springfield is not a candidate. I haven't listened to Anglicans Unscripted in a …
