The Spring issue of the All Saints’ Center for Theology has been published. Visit the home page here.
In the Think Tank, we have four great articles focusing on the value of historical Anglican theology for the church today.
First, the Rev. Christopher Klukas explains the theological stakes behind Article II of the 39 Articles, which deals with the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. Christopher does a great job of making the Incarnation accessible to the reader and applicable to the church.
Second, the Rev. Susan Skillen, the Canon of Spiritual Formation for the Anglican Diocese of New England (ADNE), discusses how the Anglican monastic tradition can help shape our contemporary “communities of prayer” through the Anglican “Three-Fold” Rule.
Third, the Rev. Brian Morelli shows how Thomas Cranmer’s theological hermeneutic helped him–and the church–discern the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Finally, Leah Easley shows the value of honoring Mary the Mother of God in our Lenten devotions.
For Spiritual Formation, we have three wonderful articles from the leaders of the church.
First, the Rev. Jack King shares a personal reflection on how C.S. Lewis and The Four Loves helped order his loves and passions according to God. Check it out; it is a valuable contribution to the church.
Second, Paul Aganski explains how the church can order their spiritual self-understanding according to the entire biblical story, so that we can live as better citizens within the kingdom of God.
Finally, the Rev. Jürgen Liias, Canon to the Ordinary for the Anglican Diocese of New England (ADNE), provides a series of brief articles explaining some of the rituals in the Anglican worship service–such as bowing, genuflecting, fasting, the Stations of the Cross, and more. Check out this wonderful series from a respected spiritual leader.
