Waiting, waiting, waiting. That is the theme of Advent, as we reflect together upon our call to wait patiently for the light of Christ. Of course, we know that, for the children in our Church, waiting is no easy thing. They wait for Christmas with a type of ravenous expectation that is hard to find anywhere else, any time else. Indeed, is there any moment that we await as eagerly as do children await Christmas morning?

A New Formation Hour
Our worship of God through Word and Sacrament is at the heart of our life together, and with the construction of our new nave, we will now be able to share in this worship as a family in one service instead of two. We have been looking forward to this day since we transitioned to two services back in September of 2016.Keep Reading
Our Diocesan Future
Our bishop plans to retire in June of 2024. In a conventional diocese, the typical procedure would be for the diocese to elect someone to become a bishop coadjutor, that is, the one who would become our next diocesan bishop. However, we are not in a conventional diocese. Our diocese was originally formed to help our province, the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), fund a provincial position, the Dean of International Affairs. Bishop Bill Atwood has been serving in this role since 2009 while at the same time serving as the bishop of the International Diocese.Keep Reading
Countdown to Launch
It’s really unbelievable. We hired Fr. Ben Williams as our Curate for Church Planting back in June of 2021 for a two-year season of discernment, during which time we planned to use those two years to explore together whether the Holy Spirit was leading us to pursue a mother- daughter, church-planting relationship. And yet even before these two years have ended, the Lord has rooted a small group of people, nurtured and grown them into a mission congregation, so that they are reaching others with no church home, bearing enough fruit so that there is now a critical mass to launch weekly services! Thanks be to God!Keep Reading
Advent begins every year at the same time: the Sunday four weeks before Christmas, as it has since the 700s. Each year, I feel His Spirit among us as we anticipate the great feast of the Incarnation, Christmas. I feel like a little kid again except that my anticipation for Christmas gifts is replaced with the wonder of Christ’s Incarnation.
