The Spring edition of the All Saints’ Center for Theology has been published. We have some excellent essays and articles this season from leaders and teachers in the church:
Matthew Brench, Lay Pastor at Grace Anglican Church in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, explains the “Three Streams, One River” church — a church that embraces the Evangelical, Catholic, and Charismatic expressions of Christianity. This will be an important text for the future of Anglicanism, since the “three streams” typology is a major emphasis in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA).
Rev. Brian Barry, Priest-in-Charge at Christ Redeemer Anglican Church in Danvers, Massachusetts, discusses the biblical model of fasting during this season of Lent.
Rev. Susan Skillen, Canon of Spiritual Formation for the Anglican Diocese in New England, offers a review of two books discussing the equal role of women in ministry as a way to humbly present to the Anglican church the biblical and historical basis for women in ministry.
Adam D. Rick, an academic and teacher serving at Christ the Redeemer, provides an essay on Article V of the 39 Articles, “Of the Holy Spirit,” which explains the nature and work of the Holy Spirit.
Christine Sherratt, a Catechist of the Good Shepherd at All Saints’ Anglican Church in Amesbury, Massachusetts, describes how catechesis is a “gift” to the church, since God speaks through his little ones.
Finally, Dr. Paul Aganski, head of the Adult Education Council at All Saints’ Anglican Church in Amesbury, follows up his “People of the Middle” series with “Redeeming the Empties,” which discusses our response to God’s plan of redemption.
Take some time to read this great content from the leaders and teachers of New England Anglicanism.
