Planning instruction on the Articles of Religion

Ten sermons or ten class sessions is a manageable amount of time, probably not dissimilar to the sermon series that pastors already arrange. The sessions could easily be covered over the course of a Church season. These divisions align with the three-fold division that is customary across the Anglican tradition, but they also allow for focused and manageable attention to the doctrines in the Articles.

Review: ‘Leading God’s People’

I found Leading God’s People: Wisdom from the Early Church for Today to be helpful and personally-affirming. The author, Christopher A. Beeley, through his study of the early church fathers, affirms the idea that church leadership is not as much about personal charisma, and having read the latest bestselling self-help books, as it is about being the sort of person that can honor God in all of life.

Jesus was hungry

After not eating for forty days, Jesus was hungry. When you read it in isolation it seems like such an understatement. My stomach is growling now, barely three hours after my last meal. He’s not just hungry, he is famished: literally, he is craving food.

Review: “Pointing to the Pasturelands” by J. I. Packer

A posthumous collection of J.I. Packer’s shorter writings sounds like a dream come true. When Christianity Today, in association with Lexham Press, announced that they were publishing such a collection, Pointing to the Pasturelands: Reflections on Evangelicalism, Doctrine, & Culture, sourced from Packer’s contributions to Christianity Today, I was very excited.

Review: A Faith of My Own, a confirmation workbook

Victor H. Morgan, the rector of St. Luke’s Church (EMC), in Blue Ridge, Georgia has undertaken a noble task: creating a confirmation preparation resource that is accessible, engaging, and faithful to Scripture and our prayer book tradition. This is a vitally important work, as the resources currently on the market nearly always fail to meet at least one (usually faithfulness to Scripture and the Book of Common Prayer) or more of these criteria. 

Richard Hooker on schism

Richard Hooker is best known for his Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity. However, among his lesser known works is a sermon entitled, “A Learned Discourse on Justification, Works, and how the Foundation of Faith is Overthrown.” In this sermon, he examines the doctrine of justification and shows how the Anglican position differs from the Roman Catholicism. Hooker is conscious not only of the Roman position but also the position of the Puritans, with their more radical understanding of justification. Since the understanding of the doctrine of justification is what caused many of the Reformers to leave the Roman Church, Hooker’s sermon also touches on the question of schism.
