Christ the Victor Episcopal Church, a new mission church plant of The Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches (http://www.theceec.org), is holding its first public eucharist service on Sunday, October 16, 2005 at 5:15 p.m. at the library of the United Church of Rogers Park, 1545 W. Morse Ave., Chicago, IL 60626. We are a traditional Anglican church that promotes the Gospel of Jesus, The 10 Commandments, and the traditional family. Contact: email@example.com
You are invited!
We are a home for traditional Episcopalians, Methodists, Presbyterians and others here in Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and Northern Indiana who are frustrated with the ultra-liberal agenda of those churches -- and seeking the traditional Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I don't know too much about this first hand, but a friend of ours has been pastor of the Evangelical Episcopal Church in Greenwich, Connecticut, for some years.
He was disbarred by his bishop on a number of disputed points, of which the chief was that he refused to preach that homosexuality is a Good Thing.
As a former Episcopalian myself, I had thought that the Anglican Church was broad and tolerant enough to contain almost any range of differences, but the American bishops have been absolutely determined to force a split on their church, and they seem to be succeeding.
You are quite a learned and intelligent man -- as your name indicates.
The Episcopal Church of the USA has indeed forced out all who believe in the Gospel of Jesus as taught for nearly 2,000 years -- until about 1975 when the "gay revolution" occurred.
Now we traditional Episcopalians are seeking refuge with like-minded bishops.
I am not surprised your priest friend was thrown out of ECUSA for refusing to preach about gays -- they won't even ordain priests these days unless they pledge that they believe being gay is great.
Please know that you are welcome at our church -- as are all. We are all sinners in need of God's help. We cannot pretend otherwise.
Thanks. I'm a Catholic now, but I was raised Episcopalian and was a High Anglican, I guess you'd say, until I converted in college. But I owe a great deal to my Episcopal upbringing, and will always be grateful for it. I'm sad to see the troubles ECUSA is going through.
