Megachurches Can’t Do It Alone

I have never envied megachurches or wished myself the pastor of one, at least not consciously.  But I have from time to time found myself criticizing them which probably indicates some shadow in my soul.  This article is a breath of convicting fresh air for me, and a good reminder that we are all in this together.  It affirms the role of the 90% of churches of the world that aren’t mega, or anywhere close, while also recognizing the much needed ministry of the 10% that are.

Three Important Articles

I recommend these three brief articles:

  1. Eliud Wabukala, Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya and GAFCON Chairman explains why Kenya (and no doubt other GAFCON Primates) will not be participating in the ACC meeting in Lusaka next month.
  2. Archbishop Robert Duncan’s interview describing the new ACNA Lectionary.
  3. “More Anglicans Die at Hands of Boko Haram than all Christians in Middle East”– the on-going martydom of Anglicans in Nigeria, described by Bishop Kwashi.

“A Way Forward Out of the Violence that Dominates Our Desperate World” you have seen the movie, The Revenant, then you will not want to miss this review and theological reflection by Bishop Robert Baron. As usual I am amazed by his insight.  I’d like to think he viewed the movie twice.  I know when I watched it I was so caught up in the tension of the plot and the visual imagery all I could hope to do was survive!  See what you think.

Judgment or Burden Bearing?

From Oswald Chambers’ Disciples Indeed

There is no room for harsh judgment on the part of the child of God.  Harsh judgement is based, not on the sternness of the Holy Spirit, but on my refusal to bear someone else’s burden.

Gal 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
