Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion, USA

I recently had an opportunity to learn more about the Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion, USA from its president, Zac Neubauer. There are some exciting developments going on in the broader evangelical/Anglican world, and I hope this interview will encourage you and show you how you can be a part of what God is doing.

An evening hymn

To the dear Guardian of my hours,
An evening song shall rise;
Assist me, ye celestial powers,
And bless this sacrifice.

Thy mercies, Lord, are ever new,
Thy goodness, O how great!
Who can refund the honours due,
Or equal thanks repeat?

J. C. Ryle on preaching Christ

If there is no salvation excepting by Christ, we must not be surprised if ministers of the gospel preach much about Him. They cannot tell us too much about the name which is above every name. We cannot hear of Him too much. We may hear too much about controversy in sermons; we may hear too much of works and duties, of forms and ceremonies, of sacraments and ordinances, but there is one subject which we never hear too much of: we can never hear too much of Christ.

A Morning Hymn

Great God of nature, heavenly King
Beneath whose awful sway,
The cheerful sun, with rapid wing,
Directs the flying day.

My waking soul, with upward eye
Salutes the dawning light;
Blesses the ruler of the sky,
And glories in his might.

Is there an Anglican Church?

I sometimes hear folks refer to “the Anglican Church”. Is there such a thing?

No. There is no Anglican Church.

There is no Baptist Church, Presbyterian Church, or Methodist Church. These are families of churches. There are certainly Baptist and Presbyterian and Methodist churches, but those churches are not monolithic. Neither is Anglicanism monolithic–there is no single Anglican Church.
