    Stand Firm ^ | 9/26/07
    Three orthodox Anglican groups, the American Anglican Council, the Anglican Communion Network, and Forward in Faith North America, have issued a joint statement on the recently-concluded meeting of the House of Bishops in New Orleans. The last seven days have been eventful ones for the worldwide Anglican Communion. The future of our 500–year fellowship has been focused on The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops (HOB). The worldwide Anglican Communion has been looking for clarity, praying for unity, and searching for Christ and His will in our lives. Unfortunately, the HOB has failed the Communion; their continued ambiguity, questioning of basic...

    The leadership of the Anglican Communion Network welcomed news that the Anglican Province of Kenya has elected The Rev. Canon Bill Atwood Suffragan Bishop of the All Saints Cathedral Diocese in Nairobi. Among other duties, Bishop-elect Atwood will be initially supporting Kenyan clergy and congregations in North America. He joins Bishop Bill Cox of the Southern Cone as another domestic bishop cooperating in ministry with the Network, which has strong links with many international congregations under overseas jurisdiction through its International Conference. The Network welcomes Archbishop Nzimbi’s actions which also support its “Biblical, Missionary and Uniting” work. “Anglicans around the...

    9th March, A.D. 2007 Third Friday of Lent TO ALL WHO ARE A PART OF THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION NETWORK OR ARE ALLIES IN ITS WELFARE: Beloved in the Lord, The Primates’ Meeting in Tanzania considered in great depth the plight “of those congregations and dioceses within the Episcopal Church who have sought alternative pastoral oversight because of their theological differences with their diocesan bishop or with the Presiding Bishop.”(1) The hope of the Primates’ Meeting, in the words of the Archbishop of Canterbury, is that a “sufficiently strong scheme” can be put in place so as to be “sufficient for...

    Bob Duncan comments on Tanzania. First off, sorry to break this to you, John Chane, William Persell, Bonnie Anderson et al, but the primates do so have the right to make requests of TEC: Resolution III.6 of the 1998 Lambeth Conference authorized the Primates’ Meeting to include among its responsibilities both “intervention in cases of exceptional emergency which are incapable of internal resolution within provinces, and giving of guidelines on the limits of Anglican diversity in submission to the sovereign authority of Holy Scripture and in loyalty to our Anglican tradition and formularies.” At Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, the Primates...

    Make no mistake.  The Episcopal left is terrified: The Anglican Communion News Service has announced that the Archbishop of Canterbury, after consultations with the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, has asked Bishop Peter Lee of Virginia and Bishop John Lipscomb of Southwest Florida to convene a group of bishops from the Episcopal church “to meet together to discuss some of the difficult issues facing the Church and to explore possible resolutions.” This announcement raises a number of serious concerns. Consider the following. ONE By what authority is Archbishop Rowan Williams calling for meetings of bishops of the Episcopal Church?...

    Father Jake Stops the World ^ | 8/03/2006 | Teresa Mathes
    My concern, since the early 90s, has been the rise of a new breed within the Church that does not fit into our former classifications. They are neither High nor Low, conservative nor liberal. A parallel could be made between this new group and the emergence of what is sometimes called the "neo-conservatives" in the political realm. It is a stretch to think of the administration of George Bush as "conservative," in light of the astronomical deficit we currently face and his Wilsonian idealism regarding the exportation of democracy. This new breed is certainly not "conservative" in the same way...

    The American Anglican Council (AAC) Comments on the Episcopal Election in the Diocese of California The Diocese of California gathered in convention today elected the Rt. Rev. Mark Andrus as bishop on the third ballot. Andrus currently serves as Suffragan Bishop of Alabama. This election has garnered international attention in light of the fact that three partnered homosexuals were nominated, two by the nominating committee and one by petition, demonstrating defiance of the mind of the Anglican Communion on human sexuality. None of the seven candidates has indicated intentions to declare and implement a moratorium on same-sex blessings or pledged...

    Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat are the four “Instruments of Anglican Unity”? The Anglican Communion understands itself to be a family formed by mutual responsibility and interdependence chiefly enabled through four instruments of unity. These instruments are modeled on the early Church’s “conciliar structure” – a model upheld by both Scripture and tradition in which the Church met in councils to consider and resolve theological and doctrinal issues. Today, the four instruments of unity in the Anglican Communion are also responsible for articulating and upholding the mind of the Church on matters of doctrine and theology, and they include the:Archbishop of Canterbury...
  • Growing Numbers of Churches Affiliating with the Anglican Communion Network

    Pittsburgh, PA (March 9, 2006)-- Since the beginning of 2006, eleven parishes with their clergy and ten individual clergy have affiliated with the Anglican Communion Network (ACN). Another eleven affiliates are slated to be approved within the week. This steady stream of new affiliate churches and individuals comes from within the Episcopal Church USA (ECUSA) and from those churches that are now under the authority of bishops from other parts of the Anglican Communion. The ACN's motto "Biblical, Missionary, United" points to some of the reasons that more and more orthodox Episcopal and Anglican churches and clergy are choosing to...

    A large portion of the St. Nicholas' Episcopal Church parish dissatisfied with the direction of the national Episcopal Church was told this week by diocese officials to leave church property by June 1. A parish vote taken in March indicated 89 percent of the congregation preferred to dissociate itself with the national Episcopal Church but remain a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The national Episcopal Church, or ECUSA, is one of 38 provinces of the Anglican Communion which originated as the Church of England and spread to 70 million members worldwide. Dissenting members of St. Nicholas' object to decisions...

    Despite unresolved controversies over homosexuality in the church, the head of a traditionalist group within the US Episcopal Church said Anglicanism is heading toward a theologically orthodox and spiritually vibrant future. In statements made during the Anglican Communion Network’s Mid-Atlantic Convocation conference in Woodbridge, Va., Bishop Robert Duncan explained that traditional Anglicans have gained “lots of triumphs” in the past few months. In particular, Duncan pointed out he “stunning triumph” gained internationally when Anglican Primates worldwide called on the US and Canadian Anglican churches to halt gay “marriage” blessings and ordinations or face a break in fellowship. However Duncan cautioned...

    SOUTHERN OHIO: Orthodox Priest Resigns Parish. Bishop Outlaws Network. By David W. Virtue CHILLICOTHE, OH (8/9/2004)--The rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Chillicothe, has resigned from his parish because he found himself at odds with his bishop Herbert Thompson over his parish's affiliation with the Anglican Communion Network. "For the sake of the Gospel, I'd rather switch than fight," said Fr. Rick Terry to Virtuosity. In his letter of resignation, that has been widely circulated, he wrote, in part, "Rather than pursue the avenue of an inhibition, an ecclesiastical court trial, a potential deposition, and all the accompanying pain...

    Founders of new church say it will hew to tradition BY KATHY ROUTLIFFE A group of North Shore area Episcopalians who say they don't like the "liberalization" of their church have formed an Evanston congregation dedicated to what their spokesman called orthodox values. Those include rejection of last year's decision by the Episcopal Church USA to consecrate Gene Robinson, a publicly gay Episcopal minister, as a bishop in New Hampshire. Members of the new Church of Christ the King held their first service June 6 in rented chapel space at the Levere Memorial Temple, 1856 Sheridan Road, spokesman Wes Schneider...

    As ECUSA Divide Grows, Orthodox Anglican Groups Unite By Jim Brown and Jenni Parker June 30, 2004 (AgapePress) - The Episcopal Church USA's current direction, including measures such as the church's confirmation of openly homosexual Bishop V. Gene Robinson and its approval of so-called same-sex "blessing ceremonies," has prompted six conservative Anglican groups to form a new coalition. The alliance announced by the Anglican Communion Network (ACN) includes the Reformed Episcopal Church, the Anglican Mission in America, Forward in Faith North America, the Anglican Province in America, and the American Anglican Council. ACN moderator and Pittsburgh bishop Robert Duncan says...

    REFORMED EPISCOPAL BISHOP PLEADS FOR UNITY. RIPS REVISIONISTS By David W. Virtue BEDFORD, TX (6/26/2004)--A leading bishop in the Reformed Episcopal Church made a strong plea for orthodox Anglicans to come together stating that they were in spiritual warfare with revisionism. The bishop blasted homosexual behavior saying that it was "repugnant to the almighty" arguing that "we are to image in our societal and familial relations the Holy Family in heaven." "God took a bride, the church. The groom did not take unto Himself another groom, which is the image portrayed by homosexual union. It is the inversion of the...

Gene Robinson, Church of the Redeemer, Rochester, NH made the difficult decision to walk away from ECUSA and their church building last night. The Vestry and parish family of the Redeemer met with V. Gene Robinson Wednesday, June 23, 2004 to discuss pastoral leadership of the parish. When the meeting ended in a deadlock, parishioners prayed and voted to leave the building that has been their church home for 102 years. With that vote, the...
